Centre County Fuel Bank
The Centre County Fuel Bank helps avoid heating emergencies from January through March by providing free heating oil, wood, coal and propane to qualified, low-income Centre County residents. It does not cover all the heating costs or pay unpaid heating bills.
If you anticipate a heating emergency this winter, you must take the following actions to qualify:
1. Apply for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) through the Centre County Assistance Office at (814) 863-6571. Please note, LIHEAP eligible customers will be evaluated for Fuel Bank assistance, but LIHEAP eligibility does not guarantee Fuel Bank eligibility.
2. Attend an energy conservation class. One to two classes are offered at various locations starting in December. This class is required to receive heating assistance.
Questions? Call the Centre County Fuel Bank at Interfaith Human Services at (814) 234-7731.
