Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP)

About the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP)

LIEAP pays part of winter home heating bills for eligible people (November through May). Seniors (age 60+), those with disabilities, households with young children (age 5 and below), and families with the most need (lowest incomes and highest energy bills) are given program priority.

LIEAP also assists with energy-related emergencies, such as utility shut-offs, deposits, and heat losses due to broken furnaces. LIEAP eligibility is based on household size, total pre-tax household income, and heating fuel type (natural gas, electric, propane, heating oil, coal, wood, pellets).

When approved for LIEAP, you may also be approved for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). WAP helps qualified individuals and families reduce home heating costs by making their homes more energy efficient.

Applications for the LIEAP are available beginning October 1, 2022 and are accepted through February 28, 2023. Applications for the WAP are accepted year-round.

About Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

People approved for assistance through LIEAP may also be eligible for Weatherization services to make their homes more energy efficient and lower their home heating costs.

The WAP helps households save on home heating costs by improving their energy efficiency. Weatherizing homes often means adding more insulation, and sealing leaks around doors and windows, and it always includes basic health and safety checks. An energy audit determines which weatherization measures will get the most energy savings for the weatherization dollars spent on the installed measures. Weatherization can save 10-35 percent annually on home heating bills.

Applications are accepted year-round.
