The goal of the Fuel Bank is ensure that no one is cold or goes without electricity especially during the winter.
During the winter months, grants are awarded to households to see people through the winter after they have exhausted their state benefits and in the spring and summer months to prevent the disconnection of electricity.
Windsor residents are invited to complete an application form to determine eligibility according to household size and financial need. Call Social Services at 860-285-1839 to inquire. Funding for the Fuel Bank is made from private donations and federal emergency money.
More than 47 households received assistance in the form of a grant through the Windsor Fuel Bank last year.
Grants are provided for deliverable fuels during the winter season as well as assistance with electricity during the summer season.
