Help with Home Heating Costs for Seniors

Onondaga County is beginning outreach meetings to make sure over 60s residents get home heating help.

With the weather turning colder, and heating bills going up, the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is offering utility and heating cost subsidies for people 60 and over who meet income eligibility.

HEAP is available in every New York county (contact your office for aging). In Onondaga County, HEAP coordinator Larry Matthews, says the Office for Aging community outreach sessions for seniors (or their caregivers/relatives) starts on Sunday, (True Vine Baptist Church, Rich St Syracuse 10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and runs til the end of December, with more in the planning stages for January.
