Heat and Utility Bill Assistance

If you have received an electric, gas, or heating disconnect notice, you can apply for emergency financial assistance. You may also qualify for assistance if you have a low supply of heating fuel or a broken boiler or furnace.

The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps low-income homeowners and renters pay for utility and heating bills. HEAP is a seasonal program. You must re-apply each year to qualify for HEAP.  The deadline to apply for the 2014-2015 HEAP season was Friday, March 27. Information about applying for the 2015-2016 HEAP season is expected to be available in early November.
