The emergency fuel benefit is designed to provide assistance to eligible households to assist with the costs of winter heating.
Examples of an emergency situation include:
- a high heating bill due to the cold, which means that you are not able to pay your rent or mortgage;
- having to choose between feeding your family and paying your winter heating bill; or
- an illness resulting in unexpected high medical costs, which have made it hard to pay your heating bill.
For the purpose of assessing need for the emergency fuel benefit, the department will assess all household expenses, but remove the requirement that assets be depleted in order to qualify for assistance.
Any household in New Brunswick that is in an emergency situation and unable to afford the cost of heating its home may be eligible to receive this benefit. The department will assess eligibility on a case-by-case basis
