The Energy Assistance Program is here to help families in need with the high cost of home energy. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is designed to assist low-income households with winter heating and summer cooling costs. Households with incomes of 150% of the Federal Poverty Guideline, or less, may receive benefits to help relieve an energy burden. The Program will respond promptly to eligible households with a heating emergency. EAP can provide benefits to off-set the high costs of energy, but does not have the funds available to pay all of a household’s energy cost. Applications for the heating portion of the program will be taken from November through May.
The cooling portion of the program will run from June through August
