HEAP Heating Assistance
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps low-income homeowners and renters pay bills for heating fuel, equipment and repairs. For more information about HEAP call 800-692-0557. HEAP season starts November 14, 2016.
HEAP eligibility is determined by whether the household income is below the current New York State income and household energy costs. HEAP may be able to offer a benefit even if heat and utilities are included in the rent or the applicant lives in subsidized housing and pays directly for heating costs.
You can print an application for HEAP on ACCESS NYC, go to: Get Information > View and Print Forms > Financial Assistance Programs.
You can return printed forms to our HEAP office locations.
UAP assists families or individuals who are elderly, blind, disabled, mentally impaired or those residing in a neglected or hazardous environment who require financial assistance for their energy bills.
