Charitable Energy Program

Investing in energy assistance changes lives!

Pocono Alliance is uniquely positioned to become an energy leader with its collaborative partners. It is our goal to ensure all low income residents can meet their energy needs by securing energy assistance funding and readily accessible information. We work on several approaches to generate new funding sources to alleviate the burden of rising energy prices. The amount of energy assistance funding available is not keeping up with increasing energy costs and needs.

Residents who meet the 151-200% of federal poverty guidelines will complete the application process that will include budgeting and energy savings education.

Energy is a basic necessity of modern life. Heat and electricity we pump through our homes keep us safe, healthy, and comfortable. It allows us to cook, bathe, learn, sleep and grow. Helping families during times of economic hardship is important to the entire community. Our current economy heightens the impact of high energy costs and new funding sources can offset rising costs.
