Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a seasonal program that normally runs from October-April. Per season, a one-time supplemental grant is sent directly to the heating vendor who then credits the client’s account for the amount specified. Eligible clients also qualify for a reduced electric rate as well as a discount on their telephone bill.
