The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program will begin accepting applications for assistance on October 1st, 2019. LIHEAP is designed to provide financial assistance to elderly, handicapped and low-income persons to help offset a portion of the cost of energy used to heat their homes. Priority assistance is given to those with the lowest income. If you are in need of assistance please contact your local Neighborhood Service Center to make an appointment to determine eligibility as well as required documents to receive assistance. Information on each Neighborhood Service Center is on the map at the bottom of the website main page.
