SimplifyCT is helping families register for the CT Energy Assistance Program–for free!

Working together with Governor Lamont’s office, State offices, Community Action Agencies, and other Connecticut nonprofits, we help CT residents sign up for the program, at no cost.


How does it work?

  • The Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) will pay a basic benefit dollar amount directly to your utility company or fuel supplier.
  • Benefits range between $100 to $600 depending on your income, family size, and whether someone in your household is disabled or elderly.
  • Households that heat with deliverable fuels like oil or propane may be eligible for additional fuel deliveries.
  • CEAP program members may also be eligible for matching payment plans, protection from shut-offs, and replacement and/or repairs for heating equipment and water heater(s).
  • CEAP is administered by Connecticut’s Department of Social Services in partnership with local Community Action Agencies (CAAs) throughout the state, SimplifyCT is among these partners.
