Utah Home Energy Assistance Training (HEAT) Program Benefits

Program Description

The Utah Home Energy Assistance Target (HEAT) Program helps low-income households with their heating utility bills. This program provides winter utility 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 received over $23 million in Federal funds in the fiscal year 2014 for the HEAT program. HEAT is not a welfare program. A family does not need to be receiving welfare in order to qualify for this program. It is a Federal Funded Energy Assistance Program that is operating through this office.
