West CAP Energy Assistance Program starts October 1

Energy Assistance is available during heating season: October 1st to May 15th

Through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP), West CAP is able to help households with a one-time payment during the heating season (October 1-May 15). The funding pays a portion of energy costs, and the payment is not intended to cover the entire annual energy costs of a residence. The amount of the energy assistance payment varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household’s size, income, and energy costs. The benefit is paid directly to the household’s energy supplier.


To apply for Energy Assistance, you can either book a phone appointment to set up a time to speak to a West CAP representative to guide you through our programs, services, and application process, or complete the fillable Form on your own electronically, or by printing it and mailing the completed form to West CAP. If you have any questions or need assistance, call us at (715) 598-4750. Priority is given to applicants in a crisis or at-risk of a shut-off.
