The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) helps low-income individuals and families reduce energy costs and increase comfort and safety in their homes. Individuals, families, the elderly and the disabled who are making no more than 200 percent of the current federal poverty income level are eligible for help. However, priority is given to the elderly and disabled, households with high-energy consumption, emergency situations and homes with preschool-age children.
The HEAT program provides winter home heating assistance and year round energy crisis assistance for eligible low income households throughout Utah.
The HEAT Program is open to the general public from November 1 - April 30 unless funds run out early.
If you are in danger of shut-off you may contact your local HEAT office for crisis assistance..
