Description of Service
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, also known as LIHEAP, helps low-income families pay their heating bills. LIHEAP is a grant that offers assistance in the form of a cash grant, sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat. Customers do not need to have an unpaid bill to qualify and do not need to be public assistance recipients.
The deadline for applications has been extended until April 26, 2013.
Walk in, call or visit web site.
To apply, you will need: Names of people in your household, Dates of birth for all household members, Social Security Numbers for all household members, Proof of income for all household members, A recent heating bill
LIHEAP Crisis Grants are available beginning in January for emergency situations, such as:
Broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced.
Lack of fuel.
Termination of utility service.
Danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated.
Assistance with energy emergency situations is available 24 hours a day.
To apply for crisis grants, complete an online application on the COMPASS Web site, or paper applications are available at your local county assistance office, or interested applicants may download and print an application from the DPW Web site (Click "For Adults"). Eligibility is based on household size and income. Those with a heating emergency who have already received a cash grant this year do not need to complete another application. They should call their local county assistance office to request the crisis grant.
