The 2020-2021 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now open! The season is scheduled to close on April 9, 2021.
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant. Households in immediate danger of being without heat can also qualify for crisis grants. The cash grant is a one-time payment sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider to be credited on your bill. These grants range from $200 to $1,000 based on household size, income, and fuel type.
This is a grant and does not have to be repaid. Applicants can apply online or on paper. Get more info.
