Low Income Home Energy Assistance is Available
With temperatures regularly hitting single digits, it’s important to remember that help is available to protect yourself from a heating emergency. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) will help keep qualified households with heating, equipment and winterization costs.
LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible individuals keep their families safe and their homes warm. The program offers aid to low-income families who need their heating systems repaired or replaced, cannot pay for heating oil deliveries, or are experiencing a heat-related emergency. For more information about income limits, visit the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance website.
