The Salem Electric Member Assistance Program (SEMAP) is available to qualifying members whose household income does not exceed income guidelines and whose main heating source is electricity. Priority is given to seniors (age 60+), and persons with disabilities (those who receive or have applied for monetary benefits for their disability). Seniors and persons with disabilities may begin applying in December. All others may apply beginning in January. Assistance is limited to one payment per household each heating season and ranges from $150 to $225. Please contact us for more information on how to receive funds or donate to this program.
Energy assistance is also available through Salem Electric's Dollar Check-off Program. Funded by member donations, assistance is available as funding allows. For more information, please contact our office.
