Liberty, NY – The 2023-2024 Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) season has kicked off.

“HEAP’s Regular component – offering a one-time payment to help buy fuel to heat a home – begins Wednesday, November 1,” notes Sullivan County Deputy Social Services Commissioner Giselle Steketee. “But the Heating Equipment Repair & Replacement (HERR) and the Heating Equipment Clean & Tune (C&T) components have already begun. They provide funding to have trained professionals inspect, service and even replace furnaces, boilers, stoves and other heating equipment for the homeowner.”

Eligibility and benefits are based on income, household size, the primary heating source, and whether or not the household has a member who is under age 6, over age 60 or permanently disabled. You may qualify even if you think you won’t, so to apply for a 2023-2024 HEAP grant, go to (on or after November 1) or call 845-807-0142.

In-person applications will be accepted at Office for the Aging and the Department of Social Services, but please call ahead to confirm.
