The best time for residents to apply is now. Residents that come in now are also able to request a crisis application which means they may become eligible for additional funds as well (until funds are depleted).

Residents can call to schedule an appointment at 414-270-4MKE or go online and schedule at www.KEEPWARMMKE.ORG

Note: All sites are temporarily closed to the public. All appointments are by phone once the resident schedules the appointment an Energy Assistance specialist will call them at the scheduled time and complete the application by phone.
