Energy Assistance Information

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally funded program. The purpose is to assist qualified, low-income households with a one-time per season subsidy to help in meeting the home heating needs regardless of the heat source (wood, natural gas, electric, propane, oil, or pellets).

NOTE:  The program is to supplement, NOT to pay all of your winter heating costs.

YOU MUST CONTINUE TO PAY YOUR ENERGY BILLS. APPLYING DOES NOT GUARANTEE ELIGIBILITY OR ASSISTANCE.
