As we head into the winter months, it is peak Fuel Assistance season. Because we are not seeing clients in person, we are receiving extremely high volumes of phone calls. If you have already sent in your documentation, please allow us 4-6 weeks to process them. If you applied previously but have not yet sent in this year’s application, please review the application that has been mailed to you and follow the instructions to complete and return. If you are a first-time client or are experiencing a heating emergency, please call us at 508-525-4271 and we will answer or call back as soon as possible. We are in the process of adding more phone lines and an online application process in the coming weeks. Thank you for your understanding”
