The Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program (EHEAP)

This program assists low-income households, with at least one person age 60 and older, when the households are experiencing a home energy emergency.

If you meet the following requirements, please call our Helpline at 1-866-413-5337 on Thursdays from 8:00 am- 3:00 pm to see if we can help you.

A home energy emergency may result from a delinquent utility bill, lack of fuel or wood or the receipt of a shut off notice. Payments are for home heating or cooling and other emergency energy-related costs during the heating (October-March) and cooling (April-September) seasons. Eligible households may be provided one benefit per season, up to $600 per season. To be eligible for assistance, households must have:

  • A documented heating or cooling emergency,
  • At least one individual age 60 or older in the home, and
  • A gross household annual income equal to or less than 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.Need help with your electric
