Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
Get Help with Your Heat
HEAP is a federally funded program that assists low-income 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.
