Hthermostat imageome Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

The Home Energy Assistance Program is a federally funded benefit program that provides limited subsidies for heating and utility costs. Aging Services's HEAP Unit distributes mail-in applications to seniors, age 60 or older, and can assist with the application process.

If your energy bills are more than you can handle, HEAP may be able to help you heat your home.

The program may help you pay for: electricity, gas, oil, coal, propane, wood, or kerosene. Even if your heat and utilities are included in your rent, HEAP may be able to help you.
