New York Residents Reminded to Apply for HEAP This Winter

December 8, 2017 – As the winter months approach, Sen. Patty Ritchie of St. Lawrence County is reminding residents to apply for the Home Energy Assistance Program.

$327 million in funding is available to assist low-income New Yorkers with paying their energy bills this winter. Applicants can apply for NY HEAP assistance online.

“As winter approaches here in Central and Northern New York, many of us are preparing for the drop in temperatures—and an increase in our home heating bills,” said Ritchie. “The cold can take a toll on many of our most vulnerable—including senior citizens and those on low or fixed incomes—who find themselves struggling with the decision of whether to keep the heat on, or have the money to pay for other necessities.”
