Utility Assistance - HEAP
The HEAP Program
Contact the Emergency HEAP Program: 740-695-2405
Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) applications are accepted throughout the winter heating season. Households who have less than a ten-day supply of bulk fuel, need help for utility deposits, or who are threatened with disconnection of service may apply for assistance at the central office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Clients are served on a first come, first served basis and must meet income eligibility requirements. The applicant must furnish the following at the time of the interview: income verification for the previous three months, social security numbers and birth dates for all household members and utility bills. Applications can be processed only with the aforementioned information. Emergency HEAP sometimes, but not always, has funds for a limited summer program to help defray the high cost of electricity.
