Income-Based Conversion Program

Whether you own or rent, National Fuel’s Income-Based Conversion Program can provide grants to help eligible households convert their current heating and hot water systems to natural gas.

Customers will be eligible for conversion grants up to $6,000 per household. Unless a landlord is income-eligible for the program and the building is owner-occupied, landlords will be required to pay 25% of the conversion cost. Renters are eligible for grants up to $6,000 after the required 25% landlord investment is applied.

Items eligible for grant funding include:

  • Natural gas main/service line extensions
  • Natural gas houseline installations
  • Equipment conversion costs (e.g., furnaces, boilers, water heaters and thermostats)

In order to qualify for assistance, applicants must be:

  1. Located in National Fuel’s WNY service territory
  2. The owner of an owner-occupied residence, or a tenant who is responsible for their own utility bill
  3. Currently heating with oil, propane, electricity, wood or coal
  4. Income eligible
