> Utah Home Energy Assistance Training (HEAT) Program
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 $12 million in Federal funds in the fiscal year 2004 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.
General Program Requirements:
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Utah, you must need financial assistance for home energy costs and your household's annual income before taxes must not exceed $16,245 if one person lives in the household; $21,855 if two people live in the household; $27,465 if three people live in the household; $33,075 if four people live in the household; $38,685 if five people live in the household; $44,295 if six people live in the household; $49,905 if seven people live in the household; $55,515 if eight people live in the household; and $61,125 if more than eight people live in the household.
