Regular HEAP benefits range from $20 to $450 and are based on income, the home’s primary fuel source (such as oil, gas, propane or kerosene) and the number and ages of household members.
Emergency benefits are available for those who are eligible for HEAP and have an energy-related emergency such as a power shutoff, dangerously low levels of oil or propane or low supplies of wood or coal.
Furnace repair or replacement
The HEAP furnace repair or replacement component is available to help low-income homeowners repair or replace furnaces, boilers and other direct-heating elements necessary to keep the home’s primary heating source functional.
