Are you looking for help with your energy bills?
The mission of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is to assist low income households who have an energy crisis.
Keep them warm.
This is a federally funded project administered by OACAC.
Start dates are as follows:
The Winter Heating and Energy Assistance Program (EA) provides a one-time payment for assistance with winter heating costs for low-income households.
The Energy Crisis Intervention Program provides utility assistance and relief for eligible households to alleviate an energy-related crisis.
Crisis includes a sudden, unexpected, uncontrollable loss of financial resources, life-threatening conditions (utility services disconnected or fuel depleted), and circumstances that threaten the stability if energy aid is not supplied.
