What is LIHEAP?

Working Remotely

LIHEAP or HEA is a federally funded program from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that helps low-income households pay for heating costs including:

  • Electric 

  • Natural gas

  • Oil

  • Other deliverable fuels


Even if your heat is included in your rent, you may qualify. LIHEAP grants are also available for medically necessary cooling costs.


Applications are accepted from October 1 through June 30 each year.
