Residents of Nunatsiavut are advised that, effective immediately, those that have full tanks of stove/furnace oil will not receive assistance under the Nunatsiavut COVID-19 Emergency Heat Subsidy Program until their tanks are empty.
Nunatsiavut Government staff will determine whether or not household oil tanks are full. Those deemed to be in need of oil will continue to receive assistance. Those whose tanks are full will be able to continue receiving assistance once their oil runs out.
These changes are necessary to ensure individuals are not stockpiling large amounts of heating fuel.
The purpose of the Nunatsiavut COVID-19 Emergency Heat Subsidy Program is to provide assistance to those most vulnerable and those economically impacted by the global pandemic in covering costs of home heating.
