Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

HEAP helps qualified senior citizen homeowners or tenants, and also non-senior low-income families with their fuel and utility costs. You are eligible for heap through the Department for the Aging (DFTA) if:

  • You meet income guidelines, and you are 60 years of age or older
  • Or you are the head of household and receive Social Security Disability
  • Or you live alone or with a spouse only and receive SSI Code A

Apply early because there are limited funds available.

For information and applications call: (212) 442-1000
