Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, LIHEAP, helps eligible families pay PART of their home heating costs. LIHEAP can pay for fuel used to heat the home lived in during the months of October 1-May 31. It cannot pay for ''stockpiling'' extra fuel by filling storage tanks not connected to the furnace. The amount of benefits depends upon income, type and size of the home, and the type of fuel used. LIHEAP will also help in heating emergencies and pay for cooling for medically eligible individuals.
Contact your County Social Service Board for further information about programs and eligibility.
