Important Facts:
  • If you have a shut off notice on your natural gas or electric, you need to let us know prior to being shut off.  If your service is shut off the company does not have to take the HEAP grant to turn you back on.
  • You should not wait until you are out of fuel to apply for HEAP.  You should let us know when you are low on fuel (less than a quarter tank), as the non-utility fuel companies may charge a delivery fee if they have to deliver “off route” because you are out of fuel.  You will receive less fuel as this charge is deducted from your HEAP grant.
  • Most individuals or families receiving either Temporary Assistance or SNAP benefits on September 12, 2014 will receive a one time Regular HEAP benefit through that case and do not need to apply separately.
  • Non-heating electric shut offs cannot be paid with Regular HEAP Benefits.
