Energy Assistance

The Brightpoint Energy Assistance Program (EAP) helps low-income families with the high cost of home energy. Income eligible families are provided a one-time benefit to their heating and electric companies to offset the high cost of utility bills during the winter months.  Brightpoint provides benefits for households in Allen, Dekalb, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, and Whitley Counties.

The application period for the 2021-2022 Energy Assistance Program has closed. There is no longer a summer cool program. If you find yourself in a utility crisis over the summer please call 211 or your local trustee for assistance.

The 2022-2023 Energy Assistance Program will begin on November 1st, 2022. Follow along on this website or our Facebook page for updates on the program as they become available. If you have moved since you last applied, please be sure to complete a Change of Address form and submit it so that we have current information on record.
