Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) and Erie County Legislator Tim Kennedy announced New York will receive $12,793,718 in emergency energy assistance funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) funding to NYS is formula based and will be distributed to eligible county applicants on a first come first serve basis. 

This funding is directed to low-income families and seniors to help them heat their homes.  During the 2009-2010 HEAP season, the program provided 203,237 benefits totaling $51.9 million in assistance to residents in Erie County. 

“With the end of summer here and the colder months approaching, this is timely good news for local seniors living on a tight, fixed income,” Congressman Higgins said.
