Brookfield Social Services has begun taking applications for heating assistance. Individuals with income below $37,645 per year and couples below $49,228 per year and assets below $12,000 for renters and 15-thousand for homeowners, may qualify for heating assistance. Brookfield residents will need to provide current income, including Social Security, pensions, interest, and dividends and asset information along with an electric bill. Telephone applications will be taken to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 infection. A locked drop-box is located outside the Senior Center doors to drop off required documentation.
