Crisis Intervention Program
The Crisis Intervention Program (CIP) is a Federally-funded program that assists individuals and
families who are experiencing a heating or cooling related crisis. A household is considered to
be in a crisis if it is currently experiencing or is in danger of experiencing a life-threatening or
health-related emergency and sufficient, timely, and appropriate assistance is not available from
any other source. Life-threatening is defined as a household that has no heating or cooling
source or has a disconnect notice for their primary heating or cooling service and the health or
well-being of a household member would be in danger if the heating or cooling crisis was not
alleviated. Each household should be evaluated on a case by case basis to determine if there is
a heating or cooling crisis. This is a heating and cooling crisis program and not a program for
other utility assistance.

Contact your local Department of Social Services to complete the application process and for
additional information on CIP.
