The Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program helps eligible seniors pay their home energy bill, if there is a crisis. This federally funded program pays up to $600. If qualified, you may receive one benefit per season per household.
To qualify for EHEAP:
- To receive help, you must be age 60 or older
- Meet income requirements
- The utility company must have either issued a past due bill, or have sent a letter saying it plans to cut off service
- You must be approved by SRA
Senior Resource Alliance (SRA) checks your eligibility for the assistance program. SRA works only with community caseworkers, and your information is kept confidential.
