Montgomery County Office for Aging is an alternate certifier for Montgomery County Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). If you received HEAP last year, you will get a notice to re-apply for assistance this year. MCOFA is here to help! Call 518-843-2300 for assistance.
HEAP SEASON STARTS NOVEMBER 1
HEAP applications were mailed out to those who received the benefit the previous year. If you already receive food stamps/public assistance reach out to your caseworker at Montgomery Co. Department of Social Services (DSS).
The HEAP benefit is a one-time payment to assist with your energy bills.
If you are in an emergency situation such as no power/oil/wood etc. or have received a shut-off notice, contact Montgomery Co. DSS at 518-212-5778. The emergency program starts in January 2023.
The HERR and Clean & Tune Program is offered year round.
