This Local Commissioners Memorandum (LCM) provides information on the early mail out process that will be conducted for the upcoming 2010-11 Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).
The LCM also advises local districts that processing cases during the early mail out period is mandatory for the 2010-11 Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) year for all districts. The early mail out targets those households that have received a HEAP benefit in the preceding year and whose household contains a vulnerable individual (under age 6, age 60 or older, or disabled).
In addition, a mail out to all households who received a 2009-10 regular benefit will be conducted in early October.
Allocations for administrative funds for this purpose and the Request for Early Outreach Administrative Funds form are attached.
