Get Grants For Paying Heating Bills & Emergency assistance for paying bills, expenses In Broome County NY Area
Get grants for paying heating bills
Broome County agencies and government organizations have processed over 15,000 applications this year for people who need help with paying heating and utility bills. The program runs from November to May. The amount of the HEAP payment provided by both New York State and the federal government varies based on the type of heat used by the household, the families income, and how many people live there. Natural gas users can receive a grant of up to $400 or more if there is an elderly person or person with a disability in the home. If someone heats their home with fuel oil, these users can get $600 or more as part of their HEAP grant.
The locations to apply for aid include:
- Broome County Department of Social Services, which is located at 36-42 Main St., Binghamton. Dial (607) 778-2638
