Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

LIHEAP provides utility assistance to eligible low-income households with a one-time payment toward their energy bill.

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. 2020 LIHEAP ECI applications available here.

Energy Credit (EC) assists households not in crisis needing assistance with utility costs. EC applications are accepted in June and payments are made directly to your utility company in December.
