2022 application

Due to the extremely high volume of applications we have received, we are implementing Open/Closed Application Periods for our Utility Assistance Program, HVAC Program, and Weatherization Program. All other programs are based on the availability of funds and appointments. 

Project BRAVO is accepting applications for limited programs as of September 6, 2022. Services include water bill assistance, patient assistance program, the housing department, and weatherization. Project BRAVO will accept applications for those seeking energy bill assistance again in January 2023.

The paper applications are only available outside all centers. The online portal will not be open.

If you submitted your application during an open application period, you can expect to receive an application update 4-6 weeks after submission.


  • We encourage families to plan well in advance and apply for services as soon as they experience financial hardship during the Open Application Period. A notice of disconnection is not required to qualify for gas/electric utility assistance.

  • Incomplete applications will not be put in the pool for services. 

    • A new application is required for each calendar year.

    • Start collecting documents for all your household members.

    • Documents such as check stubs, utility bills, and mortgage statements must be current for the 30 days before the application is submitted.

    • If submitting copies of documents after your application is submitted, show the head of household and phone number/address on the copy so that your document can be linked to your application.

    • Notify Project BRAVO of changes such as new contact information or changes in address.

  • Read the application carefully and follow ALL the instructions.

  • If submitting a paper application, print clearly and neatly.

  • Sign and initial ALL areas highlighted in the application.

  • Provide copies of ALL required documents with your application. 

  • Provide current phone numbers, emails, and emergency contacts. 

  • You will be contacted by email or mail to confirm your eligibility or for instructions if your application is incomplete.
