Utility Assistance for single moms

Are you a single mom behind on the utility bill? Have you received a disconnect notice for your heat? There is help for eligible households through public and private organizations. Contact your local utility company regarding assistance programs or find help from the resources below.

  • The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP) provides assistance for heating costs, electric costs, and energy crisis situations. Most types of fuel are eligible to receive assitance – wood, propane, natural gas, fuel oil or electricity. The funding pays a portion of the heating costs, but the payment is not intended to cover the entire cost of heating a residence.

WHEAP assistance is a one-time payment during the heating season that runs from October 1-May 15. The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the household’s size, income, and energy costs. WHEAP emergency heating system assistance can provide services to eligible homeowners if the furnace or boiler stops operating during the heating season. Heating system assistance includes payment for repairs, or in some situations your residence may qualify for a total replacement of a non-operating furnace or boiler. Call the local energy assistance office immediately if you are experiencing a no heat situation.

For additional information about the program call 866-HEATWIS (432-8947) or visit the website to find the nearest energy assistance agency.

Telephone Discount for single parents

A phone is necessary for work, school, appointments, safety and daily life. Because a phone is a necessity, there is a federally funded program called Lifeline that offers eligible households a discount of $9.25 per month of wireless or landline phone service. Only one discount per household is allowed. To apply contact your local telephone service or learn more here on single mom grants.

Food Assistance for single mothers

Hunger is real in Wisconsin. Every day there are children and adults who do not have enough to eat. Fortunately, there are private groups and public agencies that can help low-income individuals and families with obtaining healthy food. Food Share Wisconsin is the state version of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). People with the program receive aid through the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. The EBT card is similar in appearance to a debit card and works the same as well.

Each month, people across Wisconsin get help from Food Share. They are people of all ages who have a job but have low incomes, are living on small or fixed income, have lost their job, retired or have disabilities and not able to work.

Continue reading at the website to learn more about the Food Share program and how to apply for help.
