Attention Sanford School Community,
With winter on the horizon, the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) is available to help York County residents pay for their heat or utility bills.
HEAP helps qualified homeowners and renters pay for heating costs. In many cases, renters who are not directly responsible for their heat could still be eligible for the program. Benefits include help paying for fuel and emergency fuel delivery.
Households are encouraged to apply for the program as soon as possible because the application process normally takes several weeks. This has been a huge game changer for so many people.
You can apply at York County Community Action Corp in Sanford at 6 Spruce Street.

Below, you will find a brochure for the program.
