The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps low-income people pay the cost of heating their homes.

HEAP may be able to help you if you heat your home with:

  • Electricity
  • Natural Gas
  • Oil
  • Coal
  • Propane
  • Wood/Wood Pellets
  • Kerosene
  • Corn

If you are eligible, you may receive one regular HEAP benefit per program year and could also be eligible for emergency HEAP benefits if you are in danger of running out of fuel or having your utility service shut off.

We have HEAP application forms, in English and Spanish, at all of our SCPL locations.
