Heat Assistance (LIHEAP)

What is LIHEAP?

LIHEAP stands for Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. It is a federally-funded heat assistance program and energy assistance program.

LIHEAP aims to:

  • Provide utility assistance by covering residential heating costs during the winter months
  • Encourage regular utility payments through utility bill assistance
  • Promote energy awareness and reduce energy cost and energy usage through weatherization and client education

Am I Eligible for LIHEAP?

LIHEAP eligibility is dependent on household size and household income. It provides assistance to both low-income renters and low-income homeowners. To apply online for LIHEAP, contact your local Family Development Center.

LIHEAP applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis from November 1st through April 30th (October 1st for households with elderly/disabled family members).

For more information about LIHEAP or energy assistance, contact your local Family Development Center.
