Did you know:
- that if you rent and your heat is included in your rent, that you can apply for the Michigan Home Heating Credit?
- that if you receive $20 or more heating credit that you may receive increased food assistance benefits?
- that you do not have to file an income tax return to file for the Home Heating Credit?
If you have applied for the Home Heating Credit and it was more than $20 in the current month or previous 12
months, make sure to let your DHHS caseworker know so they can factor in the credit to determine the amount of food assistance.
There is no income tax filing required to claim this credit, just the Michigan form
