The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, also known as LIHEAP, helps low-income families pay their heating bills. LIHEAP is a grant that offers assistance in the form of a cash grant, sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat.

LIHEAP has 3 components:

LIHEAP Cash Grant: Pays at least $200 to help with a heating bill. This includes bills for electricity, gas, water, oil, propane, kerosene, or other fuel types.

LIHEAP Crisis Grant: Pays up to $500 to stop a shut-off of utility service, to get service turned back on, or to get fuel if a household is out of fuel or about to run out of fuel.

LIHEAP Crisis Weatherization: Help for home-heating emergency: broken furnace, broken windows, frozen pipes, little or no insulation, cracks or other damage to roofs.
