> Georgia Regular Home Energy Assistance Program
Georgia's Division of Family and Children Services offers the Regular Home Energy Assistance program to individuals who need financial assistance in the form of locally issued checks to home energy suppliers on behalf of eligible households. The amount of assistance to both homeowners and non-subsidized renters who receive a bill for their fuel cost will depend on the projected total gross annual household income, household size and payment schedule or increased cost of home heating energy.Subsidized housing tenants whose fuel cost is included in their rental payment are ineligible to receive assistance. These households are considered to be the least vulnerable for home energy assistance.
General Program Requirements:
