About Washington Hancock Community Agency

Alternate phone: 207-546-7544
Serves Washington and Hancock Counties.
WHCA administers the federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program which helps pay home heating costs. LIHEAP benefits are based on a percentage of federal poverty levels and the guidelines change each year so clients need to reapply each year. LIHEAP pays a portion of home heating costs, but not all.

When LIHEAP benefits run out, a client may be eligible for ECIP. Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP) funds supplement LIHEAP in emergencies. To qualify for ECIP the household must be below 1/8 tank of oil or about to be disconnected. This program can provide up to $400 of emergency heating assistance in life threatening situations. You can only receive this once a year, and must be a current, approved LIHEAP client.
