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.

Program Requirements:

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Randolph, Clay, or Lawrence County and you must meet eligibility requirements for home energy costs. The Low-Income Home Energy Program is available elsewhere, but BRAD administers it for these counties only.

In order to qualify, you must have a monthly household income (before taxes) that is less than or equal to the following amounts:
