[ARCHIVED] Do You Need Help with Home Heating Bills?

If you need help paying your winter fuel bill, the Fuel Assistance Program may be able to help. The Fuel Assistance Program provides a cash benefit, payable to an authorized fuel provider, for both home owners and renters whose incomes are eligible. How much you receive depends on your household income, how many people you have in your household, and your heating costs. Those who receive Fuel Assistance may also be eligible for other benefits, such as weatherization services, heating system repairs, and discount utility rates.  

To apply for Fuel Assistance, residents of all ages should call the Lincoln Council on Aging at (781) 259-8811 to set up an appointment. The Southern Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) will review the application to determine whether you are eligible or not.  Even if you are not sure if you qualify, please call to find out!

When Lincoln residents have an unforeseen and extreme financial emergency that threatens their well being, the Lincoln Emergency Assistance Fund and the Small Necessities Project may be able to help.  The Lincoln Emergency Assistance Fund is supported entirely by the Ogden Codman Trust, First Parish, and donations. For more information or to ask for assistance from the Lincoln Emergency Assistance Fund, call the COA at (781) 259-8811.
