2014-2015 HEAP

The Fulton Co. Office for Aging is the alternate certifier for Fulton Co. HEAP. Anyone who is over the age of 60, or who has SSI/SSD or Veteran’s Benefits, or has a child under the age of 6 living in the household can apply for HEAP at the Office for Aging.
If you received HEAP last year, you will get a notice in the mail to re-apply for assistance this year. If you need help, call the Office for Aging at 518-736-5650. Please complete your application and return it as soon as possible since HEAP will be issued on a first come first served basis this year.

Reminder – HEAP does not begin until November 17th, 2014.
(...even though you may receive an application in the mail during August, September & October!...)

 


- Regular HEAP is a “one-time” payment to help you with your energy bills. The funding does not pay for your monthly bills.
- If you have an emergency situation (shut off notice, no power, no oil/propane/wood) please call the Office for Aging at 518-736-5650. The emergency program will open January 2, 2015.
- If you receive Food Stamps or Public Assistance, you need to call your worker at 518-736-5600.

FYI...

- New HEAP applicants can apply on or after November 17th. Due to the uncertainty of the HEAP season being predicted, please send your application in as soon as possible.
- Emergency benefits, if available, will not be considered until January 2nd, 2015. Take a look at your budget and plan ahead for your winter heating expenses.
- Before the cold arrives is a good time of year to make sure your furnace is in good working condition. Call your furnace company soon for service!
