WHEAP (Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program) assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season. The funding pays a portion of the energy costs and varies depending on household size, income and energy costs. In most cases the energy assistance benefit is paid directly to the energy supplier.
The Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources has created an online application portal for customers to submit their Home Energy Plus Application. The online application can be found at https://energybenefit.wi.gov. Customers will be able to access the online application via computers and mobile devices. Customers will need an email address and their Social Security Number in order to complete an online application. Customers will initially be sent a 6-digit passcode to their email address in order to start the application.
