Home Energy Assistance Program
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is available to help people with low-income pay the cost of heating their homes. HEAP is funded by the federal government and is overseen by the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.
The 2020-2021 Regular HEAP benefit opens today, November 2, 2020. Eligibility and benefits are based on income, household size, the primary heating source, and the presence of a household member who is under six years old, ages 60 years or older, or permanently disabled.
