Time running out to apply for Home Heating Credit

Deadline is September 30 to seek help with winter energy bills


LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Agency for Energy (MAE) reminds qualified homeowners or renters that they must apply by Sept. 30 to receive the state’s Home Heating Credit.


The Home Heating Credit helps Michigan residents who are low-income; deaf, disabled or blind; senior citizens; or disabled veterans to pay their energy bills. Applicants do not need to file a Michigan tax return to get the Home Heating Credit.


“We strongly encourage those who need help with their heating bills to apply for the Home Heating Credit,” said Anne Armstrong Cusack, executive director of MAE. “Last year, more than 304,000 Michigan households qualified for assistance, leaving them with more money to pay for other critical needs such as medicine, housing, transportation, or food.”


The Home Heating Credit form (MI-1040CR-7) may be obtained from the Department of Treasury’s website – michigan.gov/taxes – or by calling 517-636-4486. This Home Heating Credit checklist will help to determine if an applicant qualifies for funding.


In fiscal year 2018, the average credit was $191, for a total of nearly $58.2 million paid out through July 31, according to the Department of Treasury, which processes the credits. The average payout is up $20 from fiscal year 2017.

Besides the Home Heating Credit, eligible Michiganders may also qualify for home heating assistance through the Michigan Energy Assistance Program (MEAP), which offers funding to help pay heating bills and guide recipients toward energy self-sufficiency. Learn more about the MEAP program here.
