It aims to help eligible individuals and families afford the cost of heating and cooling their homes, making energy more affordable and preventing energy-related emergencies.

How Does LIHEAP Work?

LIHEAP works by providing financial assistance directly to eligible households. The program is available during the heating and cooling seasons, ensuring that individuals and families are supported throughout the year. The amount of assistance provided depends on various factors, including income, household size, and energy costs.
