The federally funded Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps households pay the cost of home energy. The program is not designed to pay for all heating costs.
Homeowners and renters, at 200% of federal poverty guidelines, can apply.
HOW WE HELP
To participate, you must make an appointment with Catholic Charities between July and March of each year for a personal interview. It is important to make your appointment early, and keep your scheduled appointment in order for you to get help.
All heating and cooling sources, including electricity, gas, oil, kerosene, wood, propane, natural gas, and coal are eligible. To see if your family income falls within the program guidelines, click here.
