Program Information

Due to COVID-19, we will not be able to see clients in person this year. Please see below on how to apply. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is designed to help low-income families meet the cost of home heating. It is not intended to pay your household's total energy costs, but to pay a portion of residential heating costs for eligible households. In most cases, benefits will be in the form of a credit applied to your utility company heating bill. All households applying for LIHEAP will also be applying for Weatherization Assistance Program at the same time.

  • November 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021 (for everyone else)
