If you need help paying your winter heating bills, don’t wait until cold weather to find out what kind of help is available. Although H.E.A.T. fund distribution begins during the winter, you can check on application requirements anytime.  H.E.A.T. funds assist households experiencing a potential loss of energy service or households that are in need of getting service restored. The amount of funds available for distribution depends on the generosity of corporate and private donors.

 

Energy Assistance Eligibility Requirements

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program will provide financial assistance on behalf of and to households meeting three requirements:

  1. Income at or below 60% of the State’s Median Income(SMI)
  2. Responsibility for paying the cost of energy for the primary home heating source.
  3. Are U.S. citizens or legally admitted aliens.

Note: The Program typically begins the first work day of November, for the elderly (age 65 & over), homebound, and those with life-threatening circumstances. The Winter program opens first work day in December, for the general public. Energy Program applicants are served in a first-come, first-serve basis by each agency, for energy programs in their service counties.

Many agencies will make appointments over the phone to apply for benefits rather than require applicants to visit the agency initially. Contact the local agency to ask what procedures are in your county.
