Getting help with cooling bills through LIHEAP: Everything you need to know

During the summer months, low-income residents can apply for 

the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program in their state.

In addition to assisting eligible people across the country with fuel 

and cooling costs, LIHEAP also helps prevent disconnection. 

As well, it offers assistance to those in need of heating equipment or 

assistance with bills in an emergency situation.

A large portion of household income is typically spent on 

Home energy costs, and LIHEAP helps them cover those costs.

State and territory applications open at different times. 

Some states and territories offer cooling assistance 

all year long, while others don't.
