  • Text size: + -

STEUBEN COUNTY, N.Y. -- A reduction in federal funding is causing the Home Energy Assistance Program to make significant changes.

In the upcoming heating season, households will not be able to apply for regular HEAP benefits until November 16th, unless you received an application in the mail or qualify automatically because your home receives cash assistance or food stamps. In addition, applications for emergency HEAP will not be available until January 3rd, 2012.

The HEAP Bureau of the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance asks that everyone plan accordingly. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
