General Assistance

General Assistance Programs

General Assistance Programs are provided in each town to help people in emergencies, including energy emergencies.

If you cannot afford to heat your home, pay electric bills, or would benefit from energy improvements such as new insulation or a new heating system, help may be available from MaineHousing programs. Lower income households may qualify for heating assistance and energy improvements at no cost to them. Moderate-income households may qualify for low cost energy loans.
