The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a federally funded program that provides eligible Ohioans assistance with their home energy bills. This one-time benefit is applied directly to the customer’s utility bill or bulk fuel bill.
HEAP benefits are applied to an individual's energy bill after the 1st of January. Applications for the HEAP Program must be received by May 31, 2022.
For more information about HEAP, including a list of required documents, contact the Area Agency on Aging at (800) 860-5799. To be connected to your local Energy Assistance provider, call (800) 282-0880 (hearing impaired clients may dial 711 for assistance) or visit www.energyhelp.ohio.gov.
Ohioans with a household income at or below 175 percent of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for the program.
