The CRISIS FUEL program uses federal funds granted through the State of Vermont. BROC Community Action, and the other four Community Action Agencies in Vermont administer this program under contract with Vermont’s Office of Home Heating Fuel Assistance. This program begins on the last Monday in November each year. Eligibility for assistance considers all income in the household and resources and requires receipts for expenses paid in the last 30 days. Applicants are asked to come in before they run out of fuel, so please make an appointment at 1/4 of a tank to ensure the best service and avoid special trip charges. The program is usually available through the end of April each year.

Give us a call at 802.775.0878 or send an email to [email protected] and we will be happy to help!
