Home Energy Assistance Program – HEAP
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is a federally funded program administered by the Ohio Department of Development’s Office of Community Assistance (OCA). It is designed to help eligible low-income Ohioans meet the high costs of home heating.

Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus – Ohio PIPP Plus
Under PIPP Plus, if you heat with gas, you pay 6 percent of your monthly household income to your gas company and 6 percent to your electric company. If you heat with electricity, you pay 10 percent of your monthly household income. The Community Action Agency or utility company will inform you of your PIPP Plus installment. Once you are enrolled in the program, you must pay your installment every month in full and on time.
