The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased to inform residents that the home heating supplement program is open for applications until November 30, 2023. As announced in Budget 2023, maintaining the home heating supplement for furnace or stove oil is part of how government continues to help with the cost of living. The Provincial Government has provided more than a half billion dollars in targeted short- and long-term measures since March 2022.
Residents can apply online. In order to ensure the most efficient processing time, please make sure your application is complete. This includes:
- Providing a copy of your invoice for the purchase of furnace or stove oil, which should include the delivery address;
- Signing your application; and
- Double-checking that the social insurance number provided is correct.
Printed materials to display in common areas can be downloaded here. Also, if a resident has an older parent or family friend who may be eligible for the program, please encourage them to apply.
Nearly 28,000 applications to the home heating supplement program were received last fall. Those residents are welcome to apply if they meet the eligibility criteria. The supplement, which ranges between $200 and $500, is available to residents of the province whose adjusted family income for 2022 was $150,000 or less and who have directly incurred costs for the purchase of furnace or stove oil to heat their principal residence.
