Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

If you qualify for LIHEAP, you could receive assistance in paying your energy bills from the government. Many people can start getting this benefit after submitting a simple application. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program was created by the U.S. Federal Government to:

“assist low-income households, particularly those with the lowest incomes, that pay a high proportion of household income for home energy, primarily in meeting their immediate home energy needs. “The program encourages priority be given to those with the ” highest home energy needs”, meaning low income households with a high energy burden and/or the presence of a “vulnerable” individual in the household, such as a young child, disabled person, or frail older individual.

“Some forms of assistance available to low income households through State LIHEAP programs include: financial assistance towards a household’s energy bill, emergency assistance if a household’s home energy service is shut off or about to be shut off, and a range of other energy-related services that States may choose to offer, such as weatherization improvements, utility equipment repair and replacement, budgeting counseling and so forth.”
