Local Legislators Announce Opening of LIHEAP Program
HARRISBURG – The state’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now accepting applications for home heating assistance grants, Reps. Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk) and Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield/Cambria) 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 $17,820; for a couple, the limit is $24,030; and for a family of four, it is $36,450.
Residents may apply for LIHEAP online or by contacting the Cambria County Assistance Office at 533-2491, the Clearfield County Assistance Office at 765-7591 or the Elk County Assistance Office at 772-5215.
