Home Energy Assistance Target (H.E.A.T.) applications will be accepted beginning Nov. 1, and continue through the end of April, 2013 or until funds are exhausted, the Housing and Community Development Division announced today.

H.E.A.T. helps eligible families pay for home heating, cooling, and other energy costs, as well as helping to weatherize eligible families' homes.

To qualify, a family must earn below 150 percent of the federal poverty level, about $34,572 for a family of four. Priority for H.E.A.T assistance is given to households with the highest energy burden in relationship to household income while taking into consideration the elderly, disabled and families with children under six years of age.  The average HEAT benefit is a one-time annual payment of $317.  Depending on an individual situation, this amount may be higher or lower.  Utahns are encouraged to visit www.housing.utah.gov to find their county's contact information, or to dial 2-1-1.

The H.E.A.T. program is administered by the State Energy Assistance and Lifeline office through a statewide network of local community-based organizations. It is funded 100 percent by the Federal Government through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
