The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne would like to inform the community that the Akwesasne Heating Assistance Program (AHAP) will now be taking applications starting Monday, October 16, 2023. The final application deadline will be Friday, December 15, 2023 at 4 p.m. There will be no exceptions after the deadline date, as the fuel distribution will commence.  


The application process is open to Akwesasronon who reside under the jurisdiction of Mohawk Council of Akwesasne in any one of the three northern districts, or within the City of Cornwall boundary, one per household.  


All individuals MUST reapply, submit a new application, and provide a copy of your most recent heating bill for the heating source that you would like paid. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS and the bill must accompany your application. Please ensure the name on your bill matches the name on the application or we will be unable to process it.  


Individual checks will not be processed once approved as your name will be provided to your heating source provider and your allotment will be credited to your account. The payments to supplier vendors will not go out until after the closing date of the heating application process, which is December 15, 2023. Please ensure you keep making payments to your heating vendors before the closing date as there are no advanced payments allowed before the closing date. Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Friday, December 15, 2023.
