The HEAT Program helps families in income-eligible households pay their power and gas bills year-round. We also offer crisis assistance year-round. If you live in Salt Lake County or Tooele County and you need help with your heating or cooling costs, apply today.
To qualify for HEAT assistance in Salt Lake and Tooele Counties, you must meet the following requirements:
You may send or drop off a completed form, along with copies of all required documents, to the Utah Community Action HEAT Program at the following address: 850 W 1700 S Suite #4, Salt Lake City, UT 84104.
Drop-boxes are located outside. Please make sure applications and all documentation are stapled together. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to make copies in our office at this time. If copies are needed, please visit your local DWS office to access a copy machine.

You might qualify to submit your HEAT application online.
During phone appointments, HEAT staff will guide you through the application process and answer any questions you may have. To schedule an appointment, call 801-359-2444.
If you prefer to fill out your form ahead of time, you can print it and bring it with you.
Do you have someone you know that needs assistance paying their power and gas bills? With their permission, you can give us their information and we would be happy to contact them to help them apply for our services.
Rocky Mountain Power Home Energy Lifeline Program
The Home Energy Lifeline Program (HELP) is a monthly discount program for Rocky Mountain Power customers who meet HEAT Program eligibility. Clients must re-certify each year either on their HEAT/Crisis application or during a summer re-certification period. Income qualification is the same as for HEAT (at or below 150 percent of poverty). If you have applied for HEAT or Crisis assistance and have Rocky Mountain Power for your electricity, you have already received the monthly discount of $13.14 a month which adds up to $157.68 per year. If you did not apply for HEAT, you will want to complete a HELP application and submit it with the following documentation:
• All income from the month prior to the application
• Your most recent Rocky Mountain Power bill
If you need assistance with the application process, please call 801-359-2444 or 1-844-214-3090.
