The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), commonly referred to as fuel assistance, is a government program–help low-income families and individuals pay their heating bills during the winter.

The amount of fuel assistance you will get depends on your income, your housing status, and your heating costs. Some households qualify for extra help if their heating bills last year were very high. You may also be eligible for weatherization services, heating system repairs, discount utility rates, and Citizens Energy heat assistance programs.

LIHEAP fuel assistance is for low-income tenants and homeowners. Eligibility is based on household gross annual income. If you rent, you may receive fuel assistance even if your heat is included in the rent.

You need to show documentation of income and heating costs when applying.

How to Apply:
You may apply any time during the heating season starting November 1.
