Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) may be able to help you pay your electric bill. If you believe you may qualify for benefits we encourage you to contact your local office to see if you qualify to receive benefits. If you do, a one-time lump sum payment is paid directly to us on your behalf.
Applications are accepted beginning Oct 1 for seniors & disabled persons; Nov 1 for disconnected services & homes w/children under 6; Dec 1 for all others.
Payment is based upon the number of people in your household and their combined 30-day gross monthly income.
