The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) helps qualified homeowners and renters pay for heating costs. Benefits include help paying for fuel and emergency fuel delivery. You can also qualify for energy-related repairs if you are eligible for HEAP.
Households are encouraged to apply for HEAP as early as possible. The application process involves both an application and an interview, to help determine eligibility and the level of benefit. The amount of benefit eligible households receive varies depending on household size, income and other factors.
You apply at your local Community Action Agency (CAA) - for Penobscot County this is Penquis. It is important to call as soon as you can because appointments fill up fast. You can apply for HEAP July 18, 2022 through July 15, 2023 and for emergency fuel help November 1, 2022 through April 30, 2023.
