If you need a little help with your heating costs, or know someone who does, there are a variety of programs and organizations to help make ends meet. Chair City Oil works with all available assistance programs available to our customers. Here are several of the most common providers. Programs change yearly so be sure to recheck what is available often.
Fuel assistance, also known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), is a government program to help low-income families and individuals pay their heating bills during the winter. Fuel Assistance for Massachusetts residents is administered by the ‘Department of Housing and Community Development’.
Fuel assistance is for low-income tenants and homeowners, and eligibility is based on your household’s gross annual income. If you rent, you may receive fuel assistance even if your heat is included in the rent.

Citizens Energy Heat Assistance Programs. The Citizens Energy Oil Heat Program has delivered millions of gallons of discount home heating oil to poor and elderly households in Massachusetts and other cold weather states since 1979. This unique program helps protect needy families from volatile heating oil prices, which often leave households having to choose between heating the home and paying for other life essentials, such as food, health care, or clothing.
