What is H.E.A.T.?
The Home Energy Assistance Target program, known as H.E.A.T., is a federally-funded energy assistance program. The goal of the program is to assist eligible individuals and families meet the higher costs of energy during the winter and summer. The program typically runs from November 1 through September 30.
The program may provide one-time assistance to low-income residents per program year. Target groups for the program include families with children age five (5) and younger, the elderly, and residents with a disability.
Because H.E.A.T. provides assistance ONCE every program season, it is important that families and individuals do all they can to keep their utility bills current and to conserve energy.
