Rich County Heat Assistance Program
Home Energy Assistance Target (HEAT)
HEAT provides winter utility payment assistance to low-income households, targeting those who are truly vulnerable - the lowest-income households with the highest heating costs: the disabled, elderly, and families with preschool-age children. Utah will receive $32 million in federal funds for the HEAT program in this fiscal year 2008-09.
A family does not need to receive other public assistance to qualify for HEAT. It is a federally funded energy assistance program administered by the State Energy Assistance and Lifeline (SEAL) Office located in the Division of Housing and Community Development, Utah Department of Community and Culture.
