WCAC's Home Heating Assistance Program
Worcester Community Action Council, Inc. oversees the home heating assistance program for our region. If you or someone you know is struggling to keep up with home heating bills, please reach out! While WCAC’s main office is closed to the public, staff is available via phone/email.
* For heating emergencies, call 508-754-1176, option 2 and someone will return your call. Please note that publicly held electric & gas utilities have suspended shut-offs thru the state of emergency.
* If you are a first time applicant, have never applied before and now think you may be eligible, text HEAT to 80123 and a staff member will call you. For a Spanish-speaking representative, Text CALOR to 80123.
* If you are an existing client who’s household is already eligible and your income has decreased significantly, email us at LIHEAP@wcac.net, requesting to appeal your benefit. We will verify your new income and may be able to increase your benefit.
