LIHEAP Financial Assistance

LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) offers financial assistance and peace of mind to tri-state area residents. Cash grants and crisis grants are available to low-income families in danger of losing heating. Eligible households may apply for these grants through the PA Department of Human Services yearly when the program opens.

 LIHEAP runs from 11/1/22 to 4/28/23 

**UPDATE - 2/28/23 LIHEAP announced they have raised the CRISIS Grant from $1000 to $2000 for those who are eligible in addition to the $150 supplement many have received.  If you have exhausted your 2022/2023 CRISIS funds, you may apply by calling your local county office or the client helpline below for up to an additional $1000 in CRISIS.

Anyone who received a LIHEAP grant last year was sent a pre-season LIHEAP application or postcard in October so they could apply online or using a mobile app. Even if you received LIHEAP the prior year, you MUST RE-APPLY every year! 

  • Customers should mail a completed application to the address listed for their county of residence.
