Low Income Energy Assistance Program

The Low Income  Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is a Federally-funded program that  provides for a one-time vendor payment to help eligible households pay their heating  bills.  Only households containing an  elderly person age 60 and above or a disabled persons receiving services  through the Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) are eligible to  potentially receive benefits from December 1st through December 31st  or until funds are exhausted. 

Any household can potentially receive benefits from January 1st through March 31st or until funds are exhausted.

A household that applies must:

  • Have at least one U.S. citizen or non-citizen who meets the eligibility criteria

  • Meet an income test

  • Have reserves at or below $2,250

  • Be responsible for its heating bills

Energy  Assistance is important to all that receive it, but more so if someone in your  home may especially be at risk for a life threatening illness or death if their  home is too cold in the winter.

In  addition to the LIEAP program, we also offer assistance through our Crisis  Intervention Program. For more information on the Crisis Intervention Program  please visit our Crisis  Intervention Program page.
