The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is notifying the community that the Akwesasne Heating Assistance Program has been extended to include Community Support Program (CSP) clients.


Mohawk Council passed MCR 2018/2019-#249 accepting revisions to the Heating Assistance Program Policy that states, “Based on the present rising fuel/energy costs, the heating assistance program will also be offered to the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Community Support Clients beginning this 2018-2019 season.”


Existing Community Support Program clients will receive the Akwesasne Heating Assistance automatically provided that they meet all the criteria listed in the application.


The Akwesasne Heating Assistance Program is funded by the Mohawks of Akwesasne Community Settlement Trust as well as through the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporations (OLG) funding.  The extension of the program to CSP clients will be funded through the OLG funds.


The Akwesasne Heating Assistance Program is open to all members of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne who reside in the MCA jurisdiction or the city of Cornwall.  An application must be completed if you are NOT a CSP client.
