When You Need Help Paying For Heat

The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) can pay part of your winter home heating bills and help you keep the heat on.

ACTION, INC. can help households reduce monthly heating costs through its Energy Assistance programs. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) was established to provide assistance to eligible households to offset the rising costs of home energy that are excessive in relation to household income. The program is designed to reach this goal through the provision of Emergency Assistance payments, Heating Assistance payments and Weatherization of the eligible household’s home. LIEAP benefit awards are established to assure that the highest level of assistance is provided to those with the lowest incomes and the highest energy costs in relation to income, with consideration for family size.

Applications are available here October 1-April 30 each year.
