HEAP Vendor Participation
All vendors providing HEAP Clean and Tune service vendors and/or CAC services must have a
signed agreement on file with the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance
(OTDA) HEAP Bureau. This legally binding document provides both OTDA and participating
vendors with assurances that vendors understand the scope of the work to be performed. In
addition, it requires participating vendors to abide by the provisions set forth in the document.
Vendors must be directed to contact the OTDA HEAP Bureau at: (518) 473-0332 or 1-866-270-
HEAP (4327) to become a provider.
A list of HEAP participating vendors is updated on a daily basis and districts must confirm
vendor participation using this list prior to authorizing a benefit.
