Applications are reviewed by local committees. HRDC personnel take applications, review them for completion, and work with the committees to determine application approval. The committees are made up of representatives from local utility companies, electric cooperatives, senior citizen population, public assistance offices, local schools, local churches, low income population, and minority population(s). The HRDCs and local committees work within broad contractual guidelines to award assistance to Montanans facing energy emergencies. Income is taken into consideration, but because we’re privately funded we aren’t restricted to certain income guidelines. The need of the household, level of emergency and available funds are all factors that weigh heavily when determining who will receive Energy Share assistance.
