HEAP Winter Crisis Program
The HEAP Winter Crisis Program provides assistance to eligible households that are threatened with utility disconnection, have been disconnected or have less than a 10-day supply of bulk fuel. To be eligible for heating utility assistance, residents must live at or below 175% of the federal poverty line. Residents who have a utility in threat of disconnection or have already been turned off may call the HEAP hotline at 1-855-806-9620 to make an appointment. The automated line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to schedule appointments.
