Energy Funding Assistance

The Kimlin Good Neighbor Plan
Tough times can make it hard for some families to pay their heating bills. At Kimlin Energy, our customers are our neighbors and friends – not mere account numbers. If you’re having trouble keeping your account up to date, let us know. We’re here to help. Together, we can create a realistic payment plan to help you bounce back.

Home Energy Assistance Programs (HEAP)
If you need more assistance, you may qualify for HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program). This is a federally-funded program that helps low-income households meet their energy expenses. No need to get frozen out in the winter! HEAP will keep your family warm and worry-free.

HEAP is administered by the local Department of Social Services under the supervision of the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA). A seasonal program, HEAP opens in November to help people throughout the winter. Generally, all HEAP benefits are paid directly to the participating fuel provider.
Households must meet income requirements and all requested verification must be provided to the agency prior to benefits being guaranteed or issued.
