 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 have stopped taking applications for emPower’s one-time heat and energy assistance program in providing help for 2017-2018. Please visit us again in October to see how we might be able to help you with your heat and energy needs for 2018-2019.

emPower has also ended enrollment in Consumers Energy’s Consumers Affordable Resource for Energy (CARE) and DTE Energy’s Low Income Self Sufficiency Plan (LSP) affordable payment plans.

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

You might also find assistance through Michigan Propane Gas Association’s HeatingMyHome.org website.
