Summer Energy Assistance (formerly known as Heat Wave Help) helps people afford a portion of their summer utility bills and helps pay for heating and cooling device repairs when no other organization is able to assist. This program is available July 1 - September 30.
Qualifying households can receive up to $200 for utility costs or up to $1,000 for heating or cooling appliance repairs including fans. This program is funded by Xcel Energy and Denver Human Services.
If heating or cooling repairs/installations are needed, you must apply for the Crisis Intervention Program, 1-866-HEAT-HELP (866-432-8435), and be denied before your application will be approved. Please note that individuals are only eligible for furnace/AC or water heater replacements/repair once every five years.
