WHEAP provides home heating and/or electric assistance to eligible households. 

Grant County Department of Social Services will begin setting up application appointments for the Wisconsinís Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) on or after September 15, 2023. Appointments can be scheduled by calling Grant County Department of Social Services at 608-723-2136 x1125. Most applications will be conducted by phone. We will not be mailing out any paper applications other than the early short form applications for fixed income applicants that are already being mailed to qualifying households.

To be eligible for the program, a householdís gross (before any deductions) income for the prior one month must be less than the following:

The amount of heating and/or electric assistance benefit is determined based on the householdís size, income and heating costs.  In most cases the heating and/or electric assistance benefit is issued directly to the householdís fuel/electric provider.  Within the Wisconsin Home Energy Plus program, there is a crisis portion for heating related problems. To be eligible for crisis assistance, you must first have been determined eligible for a regular WHEAP benefit.
