October 23, 2019 – Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) agencies around the country, including states, tribes and territories, will be accepting applications for the 2020 Fiscal Year throughout November. Start and end dates for heating, crisis and weatherization programs may vary from state-to-state. To learn about program dates in your area, visit the LIHEAP Clearinghouse Program Duration web page.
LIHEAP helps low-income households pay their home heating and cooling bills—operating in every state and the District of Columbia, as well as on most tribal reservations and U.S. territories. Often, new LIHEAP applicants will need to schedule an appointment or submit an application either in person or online, if applicable.
LIHEAP agencies typically require some documentation from the applicant in order to complete the application process. These required documents generally include a photo identification card, a social security card (sometimes for each member of the household), a recent utility bill, and proof of residency. Contact your local LIHEAP agency to learn what is needed to apply in your area.
