You can also qualify for energy-related repairs if you are eligible for HEAP.Households are encouraged to apply for HEAP as early as possible. The application process normally takes from several weeks to over a month, and involves both a written application and an interview, to help determine eligibility and the level of benefit. The amount of benefit eligible households receive varies depending on household size, income and other factors. Benefits are typically paid to your fuel provider as a credit to your account
