HIGH ENERGY COSTS GETTING YOU DOWN? THERE’S A WAY TO GET HELP WITH SOME OF THOSE BILLS
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) provides money to help low-income homeowners and renters pay for heating costs.
If you are eligible for HEAP, you also may qualify for other programs that require HEAP eligibility:
- If you receive residential electric service from an electric utility and you are not living in government subsidized housing, you may be eligible for assistance with your electric bills from your electric utility’s Low Income Assistance Plan (LIAP).
- If your home is not as energy efficient as it could be, you may qualify for home weatherization improvements through our Weatherization Program.
- If your heating system is in need of repair or replacement, you may qualify for the Central Heating Improvement Program (CHIP).
You can apply for HEAP by phone. Call (207) 459-2950.
Applications for HEAP are accepted from August 23, 2021 through July 15, 2022.
