New Hampshire Fuel Assistance
If you or someone you know is having trouble paying for heat during the winter season, the Office of Energy and Planning Fuel Assistance Program (FAP) may be able to provide some relief.
The Office of Energy and Planning (OEP) is responsible for the statewide administration of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Block Grant (LIHEAP), referred to as the Fuel Assistance Program. LIHEAP is federally funded through the US Department of Health and Human Services. OEP in turn contracts with six local Community Action Agencies (also known as CAAs) to provide service to eligible households.
As funds become available, the Fuel Assistance Program provides benefits to qualified New Hampshire households to assist with heating costs. Renters and homeowners are eligible for the Fuel Assistance Program.
For more information, contact the Community Action Agency in your area or:

We Recommend Establishing a Budget Plan
The White Mountain Oil & Propane Easy Payment Budget Plan provides customers with level monthly payments all year long. Your annual fuel consumption is estimated and the total cost is then spread evenly across 12 months to provide a convenient way to manage your energy costs. Our experience has shown that customers who budget their fuel expenses have an easier time keeping their accounts current.
