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 2015-2016 HEAP season started November 16, 2015. The deadline to submit a HEAP application is scheduled to be March 15, 2016.
