FYI >>> Although December 1st is normally the start of the fuel assistance program in New Hampshire, the state recently reported that there will be a delay this year. (The state administrator of the program said Wednesday that a technical issue has delayed the letters that get the program rolling).

Until then, if you need an emergency delivery, contact our local community action program who will act on a case-by-case basis. In Milford, the local community action program is Southern New Hampshire Services. Call Irene at: 603-673-0756; or email her: SNHS has office hours at SHARE in Milford.
