Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

Table Of Contents:

This program was instituted by Congress in 1977 to ease the financial burden that high-energy costs have placed on low income families and individuals. In 1981, the Federal government gave states the flexibility to design their own program. New York State provides energy assistance through the New York State Department of Family Services. Since 1981, Congress has continued to provide funds to assist low-income households to meet the high cost of home energy.
