Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The New York State Home Energy Assistance Program will begin accepting applications on November 17th as New Yorkers can apply for HEAP assistance for their heating bills.

The emergency benefits will begin January 2 for renters or homeowners in danger of running out of heating fuel or having utilities shut off.

More information can be found by contacting the local department of social services or by calling 1-800-342-3009.

Applications are also available on line at www.mybenefits.ny.gov.

HEAP is a federal funded program offering heating assistance of up to $625 this winter.

Eligibility is based on household income and how many people live at the residence.  For example, a household of one must have a Monthly Gross Income under $2,194 up to a household of six having a Gross Monthly Income of under $5,569.
