(WENY)-- Temperatures are dropping and now New Yorkers can apply for heating assistance.

The Home Energy Assistance Program, or HEAP, helps low-income people with their heat bills. Governor Andrew Cuomo says households can begin applying for aid through New York's Home Energy Assistance Program on Monday, November 18th. The federally-funded program provides up to $650 for eligible households to pay for heating energy costs.

Eligibility for the program, commonly known as HEAP, is based on income and household size.
