Home Energy Assistance Program

The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a federal grant program that helps eligible households pay for energy costs, repairs and weatherization.

Income eligible customers may receive one regular HEAP benefit per season. In addition to regular HEAP, the household may also be eligible for emergency HEAP benefits. The number of emergency benefits varies per season depending on the availability of funds.

For more information or to apply for a HEAP grant, visit http://otda.ny.gov/programs/heap/.

Regular and Emergency HEAP are closed for the 2021-2022 heating season.
