To be eligible, residents must be age 60 or over, have exhausted LIHEAP benefits and be at a quarter tank of fuel or less. For assistance with gas or electric heat, a shut-off notice is required. To determine eligibility, a home visit and assessment must be completed by an Area Agency on Aging care-manager. Individuals can only receive this assistance once per season.
