January 2021: Rockingham County Action Low Income Energy Assistance Program

Our “Give-it-Away” Offering for January is a Gift of Warmth. 

Rockingham Community Action (RCA) administers the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), also known as Fuel Assistance, which provides elderly, handicapped and low-income residents with the financial assistance necessary to meet vital heating and utility expenses.  This important program is funded in part by the Department of Health and Human Services.  Since it is intended to supplement a household’s heating, it is sometimes not enough for the most vulnerable of households.  Additionally, it is an eligibility program so not all who apply are eligible.
     Donations to the Gift of Warmth program allow assistance to households who still need help, as well as to households who have exhausted their Fuel Assistance benefits and are in dire need of additional fuel.  This winter is particularly difficult due to COVID-19 restrictions and job losses and it is estimated that many will exhaust their FAP benefits much more quickly this year.

Use the “Donate” green button to donate online, or you can make out a check to “RCA Fuel Assistance” and mail it to FUUSE, PO Box 627, Exeter, NH 03833, or drop it off at the office mailbox at 10 Elm Street.
