The Home Energy Assistance Target Program (HEAT) will begin to take appointments for assistance starting November 1. The HEAT program is for low income residents to assist in paying the cost of heating their homes during the winter months. Assistance is based on income (those that are at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level) where the household is responsible for paying the homes energy costs and where the household contains at least one U.S. Citizen. The combined gross income for all households members is used to determine eligibility.
Applicants for the program will need to provide social security cards for all household members, picture identification for all those 18 years old and over, and at least one birth certificate for any one child under five years old. Those applying also need to provide recent utility bills, proof of income for all household members (for the prior month), out of pocket medical expenses, pharmacy costs for the prior month (printouts) and proof of disability. Other verifications may be required.
Those that wish to apply for the program can begin calling at 8:30 a.m. on November 1 for appointments.
For Carbon County the number to call is 435 613 0100. In Emery County the appointments will be taken at 435 381 5783. For appointments in Grand County call 435 259 6362.
San Juan County will be served through outreach, mail-in, and on-line applications. All senior centers will have mail-in applications available. Call 435 613 0100 for information.
All callers must speak to the receptionist to make appointments. Appointments cannot be made by leaving a message on voice mail. Everyone must speak to a representative to apply for the program. Please understand that the phone lines are very busy this time of year and your patience is appreciated.
A number of outreach efforts will also take place so that people do not have to travel as far to apply for assistance. Locations and dates will be available on October 1 for elderly and disable clients. Outreach locations will also be available during November and December in San Juan County.
For more information, interested parties can contact the HEAT program at 435 613 0100.
