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