LIHEAP Program Set to Open Nov. 2, Says Millard
HARRISBURG – The state’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) will begin accepting applications for home heating assistance on Monday, Nov. 2, Rep. David Millard (R-Berwick) said today.

LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps individuals and families pay their heating bills through home heating energy assistance grants. It also provides crisis grants to help in the event of an emergency or if a resident is in danger of losing their heat due to broken equipment, lack of fuel or termination of utility service.

The income eligibility guidelines for LIHEAP are set at 150 percent of the federal poverty level income. For an individual, the income limit is $17,655, and for a family of four, it is $36,375.

Millard’s staff is available to assist with the completion of mail-in applications at his Berwick and Bloomsburg district office locations. Residents looking for assistance with the application process must bring proof of household income and a current heating bill.
