Our goal is to help families, however our program also helps Community Action Agencies, Utilities, and Government programs.


Who We Help

Heat Smart: The smartest investment for your heat assistance dollars.

Community Action Programs are continually tasked with doing more, but with fewer resources. And, more and more families need help with heating bills. For example, only 15 percent of eligible households who need assistance receive LIHEAP funding. Partnering with Heat Smart and using our inexpensive kits as another weapon in your arsenal can help CAPs:

  • Reach more low-income families cost-effectively.
  • Address community heat insecurity issues.
  • Attain your organization’s outreach goals.
  • Use federal/state assistance grants because the Heat Smart kit addresses weatherization issues.
  • Create partnerships with utilities to help them spend heat assistance dollars.
  • Steer you toward additional funding sources.
  • Increase your public profile and boost your positive image.

Our program is flexible in design to help each agency meet their specific community needs. It’s a proven, proactive approach that helps families stay warm and use less energy while helping you reach your goals.
