Heating Energy Assistance

December 2, 2020

During the winter, many of us enjoy the comfort of a warm, cozy home. But thousands of low-income Georgians, including the elderly and disabled, often must choose between staying warm and buying food or paying for medication. As a result, many suffer from the cold weather because they are unable to pay their heating bills. To help with this problem, the City of Perry has partnered with the Heating Energy Assistance Team (HEAT), Inc. Launched in 1983, HEAT provides energy assistance to thousands of our state’s most vulnerable citizens each year and is the oldest statewide fuel fund in Georgia. Qualified households are able to receive help with heating bills regardless of the energy source – natural gas, propane, electricity, oil, wood, coal or other. Call Customer Service at 478-988-2754 for more information.
