The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) may help you pay for electricity, propane, natural gas, wood, oil, kerosene, coal, or any other heating fuel.
HEAP is a federally funded program that issues heating benefits to supplement a household's annual energy cost. HEAP also offers an emergency benefit for households in a heat or heat related energy emergency. Additionally, HEAP may offer furnace repair and/or replacement benefits for households with inoperable heating equipment.
Are you interested in applying for HEAP? Applications are generally accepted only between November - March each year. You may obtain more information and apply online at: https://www.ny.gov/services/apply-heating-and-cooling-assistance-heap or https://otda.ny.gov/programs/apply/#heap.
