 Striving to Help You.

emPower works with you and your utility and/or fuel provider to find ways to help pay your heat-related energy bills.

At emPower, we want to help you meet your heat and energy needs.

We continue working to provide help for 2017-2018.

Because of high demand, emPower has reached capacity and is not currently taking applications for:

  • Consumers Energy’s Consumers Affordable Resource for Energy (CARE)
  • DTE Energy’s Low Income Self-Sufficiency Plan (LSP)
  • emPower’s one-time heat and energy assistance program

Expectations are emPower will resume taking applications within coming weeks.

We appreciate your patience during this time.

Your local Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) office might also be able to help you.

You might also be able to find home heating assistance through the Michigan Propane Gas Association’s HeatingMyHome.org website.
