The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) 175% of FPIG
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a federally funded program. It is designed to help eligible low-income Ohioans meet the high costs of home heating. If you are eligible for assistance, the amount of your one-time HEAP benefit will depend on federal funding levels, how many people live with you, total household income, and the primary fuel you use to heat your home. In most cases, the one-time benefit will be a credit applied to your energy bill by your utility company (or fuel vendor). This program runs from Nov. 1- March 31. If you have a shut off notice, you can apply for emergency HEAP.
