ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The mild winter and low energy prices have combined to make more home heating aid money available for New Yorkers.

The state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance says there’s still time to apply for the Home Energy Assistance Program. The program will accept applications through April 8.

So far this winter, 1.3 million low- and middle-income households have received help from HEAP to heat their homes.

Eligible households can receive a one-time benefit of up to $625 this winter depending on income, household size and heating source.

Last winter, 1.48 million households received benefits through the federally funded program.
