The State of Wisconsin Department of Administration administers the federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Public Benefits Energy Assistance program which combined is known as WHEAP. WHEAP is operated from October 1st through May 15th of each year for regular benefit assistance. The easiest and fastest way to apply for WHEAP is to apply online. During regular business hours, applications are also available by stopping by Energy Services of Kewaunee County located at 223 Ellis Street, Kewaunee, WI, or contact them by phone at (920) 388-0652.
