What We Do
The Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP) provides heat for no-heat emergency households during the winter heating season.
Services We Provide
ECIP is intended to address non-operable or severely malfunctioning and unsafe heating systems for households that are not scheduled to receive Weatherization Assistance Program services in the near future. Only primary heating systems are eligible.
ECIP services will only be provided once per household per 10 years if the system is replaced, and once per two years if the system is repaired. The Program operates only during the main part of the heating season. Program is subject to funding availability.
