Heater Hotline

A working heating system is critical for a safe home. But for some low-income families, a broken heater is a step toward homelessness.

DHCD supports the Energy Coordinating Agency’s Heater Hotline program, which makes emergency repairs to heaters. Call 215-568-7190 for information or assistance. Income guidelines apply.

Income is calculated using gross income for all members of the household.

Income Guidelines
Household Size Maximum Annual Household Income
1 $18,210
2 $24,690
3 $31,170
4 $37,650
5 $44,130
6 $50,610
7 $57,090
8 $63,570

For households larger than eight, add approx. $6,480 for each member. (Exact amount depends on number of people in the household.)
