LiHeap Program starts November 2, 2020

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant. Households in immediate danger of being without heat can also qualify for crisis grants.  The cash grant is a one-time payment sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider to be credited on your bill. These grants range from $200 to $1,000 based on household size, income, and fuel type. Remember: This is a grant and does not have to be repaid. The program is scheduled to close on April 9, 2021.

There are three ways to apply for LIHEAP:

    • Online: Apply for benefits online using COMPASS, the online tool for Pennsylvanians to apply for health and human service programs and manage benefit information.
    • On Paper: You can download a paper application, print it, fill it out, and return it to your local county assistance office.
    • In-person: Visit your local county assistance office to fill out an application.
