Git it While You’re Hot

Empire Justice July 31, 2018

Remember the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) Cooling Assistance Component (CAC) is available during these summer months.  The program “provides for the purchase and installation of air conditioners or fans. Cooling benefits are available for HEAP eligible households containing at least one individual with a documented medical condition that is exacerbated by extreme heat.”

CAC funds are limited and it is not unusual for those funds to run out long before the dog days of August arrive.  So, if you have clients who may be eligible, please encourage them to apply.  More specifics are available at:  http://otda.ny.gov/policy/directives/2018/LCM/18-LCM-08.pdf
