The HEAT program is Utah's version of the federal LIHEAP program (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program). It is funded 100%
by the Federal Government through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
HEAT provides winter utility payment assistance to low-income households, targeting those who are truly vulnerable - the lowest-income households
with the highest heating costs: the disabled, elderly, and families with preschool-age children. Utah received about $32 million in federal funds for the HEAT program last fiscal year.
A family does not need to receive other public assistance to qualify for HEAT. It is a federally funded energy assistance program administered by the
State Energy Assistance and Lifeline (SEAL) Office located in the Division of Housing and Community Development, Utah Department of Community and Culture..
