Energy Assistance Program Details

Program Summary

MaineHousing’s Central Heating Improvement Program (CHIP) provides heating system repair and replacement services to low-income households. Priority is given to households that have no heat.

CHIP is administered by a network of local community action agencies, the same agencies that administer the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).

In some instances, households may be required to provide a co-payment towards the overall expense.

Limited CHIP benefits of up to $400 may be available for rental properties occupied by HEAP-eligible tenants.


You may be eligible to receive CHIP assistance if:
  • Your household is eligible for the (HEAP).
  • Your home is in good structural condition.
