SALT LAKE CITY -- Home Energy Assistance Target applications will be accepted beginning Thursday and will continue through the end of April, or until funds are exhausted, the Housing and Community Development Division announced Tuesday.
H.E.A.T. helps eligible families pay for home heating, cooling and other energy costs. It also helps weatherize eligible families' homes.
To qualify, a family must earn less than 150 percent of the federal poverty level, about $34,572 for a family of four.
Priority for assistance is given to households with the highest energy burden in relationship to household income while considering vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, disabled and families with children younger than 6. For more information, visit www.housing.utah.gov.
