Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program (EHEAP)
The Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program (EHEAP) assists low-income households, with at least one person age 60 and older, when the households are experiencing a home energy emergency.
A home energy emergency may result from a delinquent utility bill or the receipt of a shut off notice. Payments are for home heating or cooling during the heating (October-March) and cooling (April-September) seasons. Eligible households may be provided one benefit per season, up to $600 per season.
To be eligible for assistance, households must have:
- A documented heating or cooling emergency,
- At least one individual age 60 or older in the home, and
- A gross household annual income equal to or less than 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.
