Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) - The HEAP program is designed to offset fuel and utility costs for eligible families or individuals. HEAP funds are usually available mid November until mid April, but may end sooner if funds are depleted. The amount of this benefit is based on the type of household, income for the household and the type of fuel or utility.
