help paying bills new york The past two years have been particularly difficult for many of us. If an illness (whether Covid or something else), the loss of a spouse, the loss of a job, or any other financial hardship has left you struggling to pay your heating bill each month, Economy Oil wants you know that help is available.

What Is HEAP?

New York State’s HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program) is a resource available to eligible New Yorkers to help them heat (and cool) their homes. If you’ve been struggling to stay on budget, now is a good time to find out if you’re eligible for this assistance.

The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is administered by the Department of Social Service. For most who qualify, their benefits are paid directly to their fuel provider.

You can receive one regular HEAP benefit per program year. However, if you find yourself close to running out of fuel (or having a utility shut off), you could also be eligible for emergency HEAP benefits.

Economy Oil is proud to be one of HEAP’s participating vendors. As an Economy Oil heating oil customer, HEAP may be able to help you afford your heating bills.
