Dayton, Ohio (WDTN) - Thursday, November 1 is the first day residents can register for the HEAP Winter Crisis program.
The program is administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency who tell us approximately 155,000 households were helped last year by HEAP.
The HEAP program provides assistance once per heating season, now through the end of March, to eligible households that are threatened with disconnection, have been disconnected or have less than a 10-day supply of bulk fuel.
Qualifying for HEAP is dependent upon the size of the household and the total gross household income which must be at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.
If you are interested in receiving HEAP Winter Crisis assistance you must have a face-to-face interview at a local provider agency.
