Home Energy Assistance Program in El Dorado County
El Dorado County’s 2012 Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) will begin distributing and accepting applications on Monday September 10, 2012. Federally funded HEAP helps income-eligible families pay their energy bills. If eligible, HEAP can help pay for electricity, natural gas, wood, propane, or heating oil. Benefits may be paid once per year. The amount of the benefit depends on household income and size, and the amount of the energy bill compared to income. Even if utilities are included in rent, HEAP may be able to help.
Due to limited funding, applications for 2012 HEAP will only be accepted from households with the highest energy burden that have at least one of the following living in the home:
- Child(ren) under 5 (child’s birth certificate required)
- Disabled individual(s) (documentation required)
- Individual(s) over the age of 60.
Applications will be available at the El Dorado County HEAP office locations beginning Monday September 10, 2012: 3368 Lake Tahoe Blvd., 202, (530) 573-3490
