HEAP Assistance is Available

HEAP Assistance Available 
The Home Energy Assistance 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).

 Who is eligible for HEAP? 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:
****Size of Household*
1**$20,790.00*
2**$28,035.00
3**$35,280.00
4**$42,525.00
5**$49,770.00
6**$57,015.00
7**$64,277.00

A household applying for HEAP must report total gross household income for the past 12 months for all members, except wage or salary income earned by dependent minors under 18 years old. Both homeowners and renters are eligible for assistance.
