The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) offers assistance with both utility costs and home energy efficiency.
Applicants approved for LIEAP receive help with their utility bills from November-February.
Applicants can also be approved for the Weatherization Assistance Program. This program makes energy efficient upgrades to the applicant’s home and drastically reduces utility costs.
The Weatherization Assistance Program can also help in an emergency. If an applicant loses the main heating source for their home, Weatherization can repair or replace the heat source, ensuring the household remains safe.
