LIHEAP opens January __

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is administered by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and is operated by community action agencies. LIHEAP offers payment assistance to qualifying individuals and families, which alleviates some of the burden created by the costs of heating in winter months. These costs could vary between gas and electric expenses.

“The main goal of this assistance program is to project people out of poverty by helping them to become more enriched in their lives and more self-sufficient," shares Cindy Bowman, AVECC Billing Specialist.  

The 2023 Winter LIHEAP funds are set to be replenished on January ___, 2023. LIHEAP offers assistance to qualifying individuals on a first come first serve basis, until funds are exhausted. 


A person should check their eligibility and acquire an application by contacting their local action agency.  AVECC members may find the appropriate number below.
