Federally-funded Assistance

HEAP is a federally funded program that assists qualifying New Yorkers with the cost of heating their homes. HEAP benefits are not a loan. You do not have to repay any assistance received through this program. There are two main types of benefits:

  • Regular Benefits: Based on income, household size and primary heating source.
  • Emergency Benefits: For qualifying low-income New Yorkers who are facing heat or heat-related energy emergencies.
