Income Eligibility Guidelines
Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

2018 - 2019


Maximum gross household income is based on the number of people in the household.
For households with more than 10 persons, contact your Community Action Agency (CAA) for eligibility guidelines. 
Other program guidelines and requirements may apply - your CAA will provide you with all the details.

If you pay court ordered child support, you may be able to deduct the amounts paid from your household's income.
If your household income is over the HEAP income guidelines, you may be able to deduct a portion of the amount you paid for medical expenses.
