The Crisis Intervention Program (CIP) is a Federally-funded program that assists individuals and families who are experiencing a heating or cooling-related crisis. A household is considered to be in a crisis if it is currently experiencing or is in danger of experiencing a life-threatening or health-related emergency and sufficient, timely, and appropriate assistance is not available from any other source. Applications are taken beginning July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021, or until the CIP funds are exhausted, whichever comes first.
Households that meet the following criteria may be eligible:
- Have at least one U.S. citizen or non-citizen who meets the eligibility criteria
- Meet the income test
- Have an energy-related crisis
- Have a utility statement that shows how much is owed to alleviate the crisis
To expedite the application processing time, the applicant may include the following with the signed application:
- Picture ID
- Social Security numbers for everyone in the household
- Itemized final notice or past due energy bill
- Documentation for income received for the previous 4 weeks (both earned and unearned) for anyone in the household from any source
