Low Income Energy Assistance (LIEAP)


LIEAP pays part of winter home heating bills for eligible people (November through May).  Seniors (age 60+), those with disabilities, households with young children (age 5 and below), and families with the most need (lowest incomes and highest energy bills) are given program priority.

LIEAP also assists with energy-related emergencies, such as utility shut-offs, deposits, and heat losses due to broken furnaces. LIEAP eligibility is based on household size, total pre-tax household income, and heating fuel type (natural gas, electric, propane, heating oil, coal, wood, pellets).

When approved for LIEAP, you may also be approved for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). WAP helps qualified individuals and families reduce their home heating costs by making their homes more energy efficient.

Applications for the LIEAP are available beginning October 1, 2019 and are accepted through February 29, 2020.  Applications for the WAP are accepted year round.
