Heating System Assistance Program (HeartWAP)

Heating System Assistance Program (HeartWAP)

CommTank recently enrolled in the Massachusetts Association for Community Action Program (MASSCAP) to provide heating services to residents who are eligible for community assistance. MASSCAP is the statewide association for the 24 Community Action Agencies operating in the Commonwealth.

The program is part of the federal initiative called the Heating Emergency Assistance Retrofit Task Weatherization Assistance Program (HEARTWAP). The goal of the program is to provide emergency heating system repair and replacement services to low-income households. Households are served based on need. Typically, a fuel assistance eligible homeowner who has a no-heat or an unsafe heating system situation will call the local agency. The agency contracts with licensed and insured heating repair technicians to fix the problem.

CommTank is currently under contract to provide oil tank replacements for seven MASSCAP agencies with a goal to provide our services to twelve of the agencies that administer heat assistance. Interested households should contact their local fuel assistance agency for application information.
