The Energy Assistance Program (EA) is a federally-funded program available to help eligible customers in Virginia with their heat bills. The program is administered by the Department of Social Services. When the program is open, eligible customers must apply for EA funding prior to applying for a grant from Dollar Energy Fund’s Virginia Utility Assistance Program.
Customers who are eligible for the EA Program will have a household income at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.
