Applying For HEAP New York
Applying for HEAP is as easy as pie!
You can apply for HEAP New York in person at your local social services office.
When you go to the social service offices you must bring all of the Necessary Documents like proof of address, proof for people in your household, social security number, fuel bills, income etc.
The next step is to let HEAP know that you’ll be using D-Naf Fuel Oil Company.
D-Naf Fuel Oil Company is an authorized Heap oil dealer for the State Of New York.
D-Naf Fuel Oil has been servicing the New York City area for close to 20 years. They provide premium grade heating oil at affordable, low prices. 24/7 emergency service and same day delivery are available!
Your HEAP representative will then determine your eligibility and the grant amount they’re willing to give you.
If you’re in an oil emergency, the NYS HEAP representative might want a 7 day letter. A 7 day letter is a letter from D-Naf Fuel Oil Company stating that Mr/Mrs John Doe is in an emergency and has less than 7 days worth of oil. D-Naf would fax or email the 7 day letter over to the HEAP offices.
Your oil will then be delivered to you, from D-Naf Fuel Oil Company – FREE of charge!
Here’s a tip for dealing with HEAP: they’re very considerate of low income households with people that have vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities aren’t required to be approved for HEAP – but they do help. The vulnerabilities are:
- Children under 6 years old
- Adults over the age of 60.
- People with disabilities.
If you have any of those situations in your household, you’re encouraged to apply for HEAP New York assistance.
