The following guidelines have been established for participation in the "Keep The Heat On" program:  

  • the program is designed primarily for the elderly on "fixed incomes" (i.e. individuals on Social Security); and
  • potential participants must apply for fuel assistance through the LIHEAP program administered by York County Community Action; and
  •  be a resident of the Town of Buxton.

The maximum amount of heating fuel a household can receive during the heating season is 200 gallons. There is a minimal application process required before participants are accepted into the program.
