Fuel Assistance

What Are the Benefits and How to Apply

The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) provides money to help low-income homeowners and renters pay for heating costs. The HEAP program is not intended to pay for all heating costs, but to assist in paying the heating bills. If you cannot afford to heat your home, pay electric bills, or would benefit from energy improvements such as new insulation, a new heating system, or energy efficient appliances, help may be available.

We are taking applications for the 2019/2020 heating season September 4, 2019 through July 15, 2020.

Apply by contacting us at (800) 866-5588.
