Applications for Emergency HEAP Benefits Open Tomorrow

BoroPark24 Staff

The 2023-2024 Emergency HEAP benefit component opens tomorrow.

Emergency HEAP applications will be accepted from January 2 through Friday, March 15 or until funding allocated to this component is exhausted, whichever comes first.

Emergency benefits are available to assist eligible households with a heating emergency or a heat-related domestic emergency. 

Emergency HEAP benefits and eligibility are based on income, available resources, and the type of emergency. Only one Emergency benefit of each type is available per HEAP household for the 2023-2024 program year. Regular component benefits, if available, must be utilized first to resolve heating emergencies for eligible households. Temporary relocation for housing emergencies and propane tank deposits to obtain new propane vendors are also available under the Emergency benefit component.

Emergency HEAP benefit applicants will not be able to apply on ACCESS HRA. For assistance in applying for Emergency HEAP benefits, applicants can call the Boro Park Jewish Community Council for an appointment at 718-972-6600.
