PULP Winter Extra Guide to HEAP and Energy Assistance Online

As a reminder to advocates who serve low income energy consumers, PULP's annual "Winter Extra" for 2008 - 09 is available online. This detailed guide to the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) covers eligibility standards for Regular HEAP and Emergency HEAP. When the HEAP program is closed, or if a household is ineligible for HEAP and lacks resources to pay utility bills, financial assistance may be available under the emergency utility assistance program, which is covered in a chapter of the PULP Manual on the Social Services Law Section 131-s emergency utility assistance program.
