September is usually the best time to make an appointment to apply. Apply as soon as possible; every year. My state accepts applications through November. But don't wait.
In NJ, everyone that's financially eligible gets the heating assistance, but if one gets a doctors note saying it's medically necessary they can also get cooling (electric assistance), in the hot summer weather. Check out what your state offers.
I get it every year so they send me a notice when it's time to apply again.
Benefits are on a first come first serve basis.
