Welcome to the united way fuel fund
serving orange county!
Here you can apply below for the various services and programs that
the United Way's Orange County Fuel Fund offers...
An initiative designed to
enhance the penetration rate of energy related services available for low to
moderate income residents of Orange County. Historically, these residents living
on a fixed income have been reluctant to take advantage of energy related
programs such as HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program), Energy Savings
Workshops, case management, and weatherization services. These services offer
Orange County residents a series of opportunities to enhance their disposable
income through a process of strengthening their energy savings, the knowledge to
achieve these goals, or benefiting from programs that offer financial support.
Our intent is to reduce the barriers associated with consumers applying for a
financial assistance programs. By building on a consumer's strengths, we will be
empowering our consumers to meet their future needs.
