CAVC’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program – or HEAP for short – has assisted Ventura County households with utility bill payments since 1981. HEAP qualifications specifically target low-income households, especially those home to senior citizens, disabled individuals, and families with young children. Payments to households are determined by household size and income, along with costs of utilities in Ventura County at the time.
In 2021, payments to households ranged from $256 to $484 and were granted to families all across Ventura County. To learn more, call Maria Ramirez, HEAP Manager, at 805-436-4000.
