Enrollment is Still Open for Home Heating Assistance Programs
Older adults can still enroll in the 2022-2023 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The program helps low-income families and seniors pay their heating bills through a cash grant sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider. Households in immediate danger of being without heat can also qualify for crisis grants. These grants do not have to be repaid.
For more information about LIHEAP, including how to qualify and sign up, visit the Department of Human Services’ website.
