Changes coming for HEAP
Changes are just around the corner for the Home Energy Assistance Program.
People can being applying for HEAP on November 18, but the heating equipment repair and replacement component has been suspended for the 2013-14 season.
Federal HEAP funds have dried up in the last few years, and the length of time the benefits are available as well as the amounts given out have been cut. It could mean local government will have to pick up the tab to keep heating equipment working for cash-strapped residents.
