Heating Assistance

About the Program

The York County Council’s Affordable Housing Heating Assistance program was started in 2000 and has provided families with fuel when all other avenues are exhausted. Since the program’s inception, we have provided over $186,800 in heating assistance. Money is raised annually to support this program.

Special thanks to our heating assistance partner, Downeast Energy, who provides us with discounted pricing for the heating season.
