In response to the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Riverhead’s senior population, the Town of Riverhead Supervisor’s Office has created a Senior Citizen Assistance Hotline, a permanent addition to services the Town of Riverhead provides to our Senior Citizen residents.
Assistance with referrals for income eligible heating and electric bill assistance to Riverhead Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), PSEG and National Grid are among the services provided, all designed to ease feelings of isolation and helplessness.
Residents may access the hotline starting December 8, 2020, by calling (631)727-3200 ext. 653, on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Messages may be left at all other times and all calls will be returned within one business day.
