Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program assists low-income households, particularly those with the lowest incomes and disproportionately highest energy costs to meet their home energy costs by making payments directly to energy suppliers.
Both homeowner and renter households are eligible to receive LIHEAP assistance. The household's annual income must be at or below 150% of federal poverty level. Energy costs must also be documented.
