 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:

  • emPower’s one-time heat and energy assistance program

Please note emPower has 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.

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.

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