Treasury: Apply Today for the Home Heating Credit

Michiganders who need help with their energy bills can now apply for the Home Heating Credit, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury).

Low-income, deaf, disabled or blind persons, disabled veterans and senior citizens may qualify for the Home Heating Credit. Applicants are not required to file a Michigan individual income tax return to receive the credit.

"If you're eligible for the Home Heating Credit, I strongly encourage you to apply," said State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks. "This credit can help keep you warm during our cold seasons, allowing you to spend your money on other important things. Please don't hesitate to seek out assistance if you think you're eligible."

Individuals can apply for the Home Heating Credit electronically through the e-File system.

Forms and instructional materials are available on the internet at or by calling 517-636-4486. Forms are also available at many libraries, Northern Michigan post offices, and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) offices across the state.

All applications for the credit must be received by Sept. 30, 2021.

During 2020, the state Treasury Department processed more than 270,400 Home Heating Credit claims, totaling more than $58.3 million. The average credit was $216.
