LIHEAP is a federally funded program that provides eligible low-income households with utility assistance.
- Emergency Crisis Intervention (ECI) assists households in crisis (utility termination is current or impending) by covering up to $650 of an outstanding utility payment. Applications are accepted on a month-by-month basis, but approvals are limited and space fills quickly. Payments are made directly to your utility company within 90 days of approval.
- Energy Credit (EC) assists households not in crisis needing assistance with utility costs. EC applications are accepted every June and payments are made directly to your utility company in December.
