ALBANY, N.Y. (WCAX) - New York is spending $150 million to help people who have fallen behind on their heating bills during the pandemic.

The state says some 83,000 HEAP recipients had fallen behind on their utility bills as of March, owing an average of about $1,370.

People who qualify can get up to $10,000 in aid.
