 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 are working to provide help for 2017-2018.

We are 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

Because of demand, a specific amount of applications are taken each day. When the limit is reached, you are asked to check back the next weekday.

Partial apps are not processed until all paperwork is complete and in.

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