Are you or someone you know fighting to make ends meet? Struggling with your winter heating bills? Do you have a heating emergency?
The Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (E-HEAP) began November 1 and will run through March 31, 2018. Income eligibility is 175 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($43,050 per year for a household of four). E-HEAP provides financial assistance once per heating season to households that are threatened with disconnection, already disconnected, or have less than 25 percent supply of bulk fuel, wood or coal. E-HEAP can also cover assistance to establish or transfer service.
