Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Opens Today, Says Saylor
11/1/2011
HARRISBURG – Rep.Stan Saylor (R-Red Lion) announced that Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) began accepting applications for assistance grants today.

LIHEAP helps qualified people pay their heating bills through home energy assistance grants and crisis grants.

Cash grants are awarded based on household income, family size, type of heating fuel and region.

Crisis grants are provided in the event of a heating emergency, including broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced, lack of fuel, termination of utility service or danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated.

In most counties, assistance with home heating crisis situations is available 24 hours a day.

Applications are available from the York County Assistance Office at 130 N. Duke St., York, PA 17405. You may also call the office at 717-771-1100.

Applications are also available from local utility companies and community service agencies, such as Area Agencies on Aging or community action agencies.

Income eligibility for cash grants begins at $33,525 for a family of four.
