Families Can Apply Now For Low-Income Home Energy Assistance

The Department of Human Services is now accepting applications from families for the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) Program grants.
LIHEAP helps families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant. Crisis grants are also available for households in immediate danger of being without heat.  
With cash grants, a one-time payment is sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider, and will be credited on your bill.
Crisis grants are available to fix broken heating equipment or leaking lines, lack of fuel, heating shut-offs and utility service termination.  The grants range from $200 to $1,000 based on household size, income, and fuel type.
Eligible household income limits to qualify start at $18,210 or less for a household of one, adding $6,480 for each additional person in the household.
To qualify for these grants, customers must provide proof of income, recent heating bill, name, birth date and Social Security number for each person in the household.
Families can apply online, through local county assistance offices and other local offices.
For more information on eligibility requirements, contacts for more information, visit the DHS Heating Assistance webpage.
