LIHEAP

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides heating and cooling assistance to low-income households with a one-time payment directly to their utility company toward an electric or gas bill.

Households may receive one type of LIHEAP assistance per program year, which runs from October 1 through September 30.

Emergency Crisis Intervention (ECI)

ECI assists households in crisis (electric or gas service has been or will be disconnected). Applications are accepted year-round, but the number of approvals each month are limited and space fills quickly.
