Share the Warmth

Every winter, many Vermonters face the possibility of having cold homes because they cannot pay their fuel or utility bills. The WARMTH Support Program, using funds donated by concerned Vermonters, will be an important resource for them.

All funds are collected by the utilities and fuel suppliers and are given to the participating Community Action Agencies. The agencies, in turn, provide counseling and referral services and administer WARMTH funds, making sure that every dollar contributed by customers goes directly to a Vermonter in need.

WARMTH funds are available for emergency situations – that is they are used when a household has exhausted its supply of fuel or faces disconnection of utility services. Funds are available only when an individual has not been able to find sufficient help through other channels.



Since its 1986 inception, WARMTH has been making a difference. During the first 24 years, nearly $2,824,700 has been raised through customer and utility donations. Almost all of the money has been distributed to about 50,000 families and individuals facing heating emergencies in the middle of Vermont's cold winter. An additional 39,000 households received essential information and counseling that helped them avoid heating crises. WARMTH's success in helping those in need has been matched by program growth. From its beginning with one Community Action Agency and three utilities in 1986, WARMTH now has 8 utilities, one fuel supplier and all five Community Action Agencies for the upcoming heating season.
