HEAP announcement

New York State HEAP Program Opening
The New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) will open the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) on November 14, 2016. HEAP is a federally funded program that issues heating benefits to supplement a household’s annual energy cost. Eligible New York households may receive one regular HEAP benefit per program year to help pay for home heating. An emergency HEAP benefit is available for eligible households in danger of running out of fuel or having utility service shut off. Eligibility and benefits are based on income, household size, primary heating source, and household membership. The OTDA HEAP webpage lists information about eligibility and benefit amounts. Questions about the HEAP program should go directly to a household’s local department of social services.
Reminder that Funding is Available for Tuning Up Heating Systems
