Rock Cooperative Care

Rock Cooperative Care

Some Rock Energy members need a little help paying their energy bills. They might earn too much to qualify for state and federal energy assistance, or they might need some extra money to supplement the other programs. Either way, Rock Cooperative Care is available to help, providing a one-time grant of up to $500. 

Check this chart to see if your household qualifies for assistance. For example, a four-person household would be eligible if the total annual income is $78,600 or less.
