BRAD Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP)
How LIHEAP Works:
The Home Energy Assistance Program helps low-income households with home energy costs by administering Regular Assistance and Crisis Intervention Programs. Each program provides financial assistance to eligible households with a one-time per year payment to the household’s energy supplier or, under certain circumstances, to the applicant. The Crisis Intervention Program provides assistance to eligible households facing energy-related emergencies.
The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program provides payments for utilities used in heating for electricity, natural gas, wood, or propane (Winter) and in cooling for electricity (Summer), directly to the utility companies, allowing low-income families to heat or cool their homes.
