Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

OZARK OPPORTUNITIES, INC. has announced the Regular Home Energy Assistance Program will end February 28, 2014. The Crisis Home Energy Assistance Program will end March 28, 2014.

The Regular program assists with non-emergency utility assistance, gas or electric. The benefit amount is determined by the gross monthly income and the number in the household.

The Crisis program provides assistance to eligible low-income households with energy related crisis or shut-off on the date of application.

All applicants will be required to furnish proof of income for all household members for the month prior to application. Other information may be requested at the time of application including proof of resources.

Please note Baxter, Boone, Marion and Newton county outreach offices are now taking appointments. Individuals interested in applying for assistance in those counties will need to call before the indicated open day to schedule an appointment; see appointment schedule below.

We will continue accepting and processing applications received through the mail. Applications can also be picked up at our office during open days or downloaded from our website: ozarkop.wp.iescentral.com.
