Energy Efficiency Programs
Let the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) help you with your gas bills. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t delay.
If you are receiving temporary assistance or food stamps, you do not need to apply for HEAP. Your HEAP benefit will be applied to your gas bill automatically.
However, if your gas is off or you have a shutoff notice, visit your county’s HEAP location to apply in person.
Visit Erie County’s website. Select ‘Calendar’ for the 2020-2021 HEAP Outreach Calendar (a listing of HEAP outreach sites).
Send your application to the address stamped on the application.
If you received HEAP last year you will need to submit:
NOTE: Proof of unearned income (SSD, Social Security, workers’ comp., etc.) is not required.
If you DID NOT receive HEAP last year you will need to submit:
NOTE: A phone interview may be required if you do not apply in person. Be sure to provide a working phone number for the county to reach you.
