LIHEAP is a United States federal services program established in 1981. The mission of LIPHEAP is to assist low income households. The program is funded by grants appropriated from the federal government.
We are encouraging all customers who need fuel assistance to apply. Even if you have not qualified in the past, you may qualify due to changes in state limitations.
LIHEAP opens in early November. If you have received a grant last year, you should receive an application in the mail in late September.
If you did not receive LIHEAP last season, you may obtain an application for the 2016-17 LIHEAP season by:
- Contacting your local County Assistance office by phone or in-person
- Calling the LIHEAP Client Helpline: 866-857-7095
- Applying online at: www.compass.state.pa.us
