Fact Sheet

HEAT, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides energy assistance statewide to Georgians in need, regardless of the energy used – natural gas, propane, electricity, oil, wood, coal or other types of energy source.

Originally established by Atlanta Gas Light Company in 1983, HEAT is the oldest statewide fuel fund in Georgia. The organization has helped address the energy needs of low-income Georgians by joining forces with concerned citizens, businesses and local and state government. With deregulation of the natural gas industry in Georgia, HEAT became a separate 501 (c)(3) nonprofit in May 2000.

During the past 34 years, more than $23 million in energy assistance has been donated and disbursed to nearly 100,000 households.

HEAT funds are distributed by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services through local community action agencies. Eligible families and individuals apply for assistance at the agency that serves their county. Households must meet established guidelines that include income eligibility. During the 2016-2017 winter, HEAT provided more than $741,000 to more than 6,000 Georgians.

Private citizens, organizations and businesses can donate to HEAT in the following ways:
