HEAP (NY)

Resources on the Web

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a federally funded energy assistance program. It can help you stay warm in the winter, thereby reducing the risk of health and safety problems.

Types of Grants

There are two types of HEAP grants: regular and emergency. Even if you have already received a regular HEAP grant toward your Orange & Rockland bill, you may still be eligible for an emergency HEAP grant to help you avoid a service interruption. In addition, you may qualify for an Emergency HEAP grant even if the Regular HEAP component is closed, but you must apply in person at your local Department of Social Services office.

For additional information, please visit the New York State myBenefits Web site.

HEAP ends when funding runs out. If you've exhausted all governmental resources for financial assistance and you can provide supporting documentation of emergency/crisis circumstances (medical bills, unemployment, etc.), you may be able to get help from The Neighbor Fund.
