Energy Share of Montana

Through the Energy Share Program, ACTION INC. can provide emergency assistance to help households pay back heating bills or buy fuel.  For energy related emergencies where LIHEAP cannot assist, Energy Share of Montana (ESOM) may be able to provide a zero interest loan. Energy Share, which is funded solely by donations, provides zero interest loans to households who are either without or soon to be without heat or power. Energy Share loans can be repaid with payments as low as $10 per month.

Some examples of energy emergencies are: a shut-off notice from the power company, inability to obtain heat or power due to a past bill, repair or replacement of a non-functioning furnace, or damages that affect the ability to heat the home. Eligibility for Energy Share is based on the household’s situation. ESOM applications are reviewed and decided upon by a local board. Please contact Energy Programs staff for an application. Assistance is available while funding lasts.
