Onondaga County Office for Aging to Hold HEAP Outreach Events for Seniors

Share

By Staff –

 

seniorsThe Onondaga County Office for Aging will hold several Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) outreach events to assist seniors with applying for the program. 

HEAP provides limited subsidies for heating and utility costs.

“The December outreach events were very successful, but the temperatures are continuing to dip,” Pete Headd, executive director of the office, stated.”The Office for Aging is seeking to assist seniors, age 60 or older and income eligible, who need help paying their energy bills, with the HEAP application process. HEAP assistance is available on a first come, first served, basis so applications should be filed as soon as possible.”

According to Headd, appointments are not needed for the events, and seniors who are unable to attend can call (315) 435-2362 to request an application by mail.
