Energy Assistance

RPMC’s Energy Assistance Program focuses on meeting the home energy needs of low-income individuals and families through utility payment assistance and education on controlling energy costs. The Energy Assistance Program is funded through federal and local sources and is not an entitlement program. It is based on income eligibility and the availability of funds.

Clients can apply by calling their local office. Incomplete applications or missing documentation will delay the application process. The following documentation is required for a complete application.

  • Proof of income for all household members of the age of 18 for the thirty days prior to the day of the application. This may include:
