| LIHEAP Now Open |
Eligible Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to apply for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP helps low-income people pay their heating bills through home energy assistance grants and crisis grants.
Grants are awarded based on household income, family size, type of heating fuel and region. The program also provides crisis grants to individuals and families in the event of a heating emergency, including broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced, lack of fuel, termination of utility service or in danger of being without fuel.
Staff in State Representative Millard’s Berwick and Bloom offices will be happy to help you fill out an application. Just bring in proof of income (i.e. Social Security statement, tax forms, etc.) and a utility bill associated with your heating costs.
In most counties, assistance with home heating crisis situations is available 24 hours a day. The Department of Public Welfare is sending all LIHEAP clients who applied online last year a postcard notice encouraging them to reapply online. Prior applicants who did not apply online last year will still be mailed paper applications.
