Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
Get Help with Your Heat
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 Arrears Supplement Benefit: Provides a one-time benefit of up to $10,000 towards past due charges for electricity and/or natural gas for qualifying households. Limited funds are available. Contact us today at 800-490-0025.
- 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.
