The state’s Home Energy Assistance Program is now taking applications from eligible Morris County residents who may be having trouble paying their heating bills.

The HEA Program helps individuals and families who pay their own heating bills or who have their heating included in their unsubsidized rent.

Applications are evaluated by household size, monthly gross income, heating bills and several other criteria.

The HEA Program is administered by the New Jersey departments of Community Affairs and Energy through the Morris County Organization for Hispanic Affairs, which for the past eight years has been designated by the state as the county agency to receive the applications for assistance.

Applications for the HEA Program are being accepted now to April 30.

For more information or to request an application, contact the Morris County Organization for Hispanic Affairs at its 95-97 Basset Highway location in Dover at
(973) 366-1131, or at its 120-122 Speedwell Ave. office in Morristown at (973) 644-5627.
