HEAP – Home Energy Assistance Program


The Home Energy Assistant Program (HEAP) is a federally funded program administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency’s Office of Community Assistance (OCA).  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).  To download a HEAP application, visit http://development.ohio.gov/is/is_energyassist.htm

Ohioans with a household income at or below 175 percent of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for the program.  For 2016-2017, the income levels are:
