General Information
Description of ServiceThe Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) assists and completes applications for Town residents 60 and older. HEAP is critical for low-income seniors who tend to live in older homes that are not insulated well and therefore incur high heating bills. This program helps to alleviate those large bills by paying a determined amount directly to the resident's fuel source.

The HEAP Cooling Assistance Program will provide for the purchase and installation of air conditioners not to exceed $800 or a fan to eligible households.
