By Ted Dallas, Secretary, Pennsylvania Department of Human Services
The Wolf Administration wants to make sure that all Pennsylvanians are safe and healthy. So today, I would like to take the opportunity to remind Pennsylvanians that the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is here to help with energy bills.
LIHEAP provides assistance for home heating bills to keep low-income Pennsylvanians warm and safe during the winter months. The program is available to both renters and homeowners. The support comes in the form of a grant, so the individual does not have to repay assistance, and goes directly to their utility company or home heating fuel provider.
The LIHEAP cash and crisis program opened November 1, 2016 and is scheduled to close March 31, 2017.
Applying is easy!
Online applications can be completed by visiting www.compass.state.pa.us. Paper applications are still available through local county assistance offices, or interested applicants can download and print an application from the department’s website.
