Cold weather turns attention to the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), a federally funded program managed by the Ohio Department of Development to help income-eligible consumers with winter heating costs. The program is available from November 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.
This funding consists of two components: HEAP and the Winter Crisis Program (WCP), also called Emergency HEAP (E-HEAP). To qualify for either program, click here for information on the Ohio Consumers Counsel website and factsheet.
The Ohio Department of Aging has specific eligibility information listed on their website as well as a convenient online application.
If you have questions about eligibility for this and other programs, please contact the Agency by calling 937-223-HELP (4357) or 1-800-258-7277, use our online Chat button or our online form.
