Heating Assistance

For families in need, the Pennsylvania Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) gives energy assistance and crisis grants. They not only want to make sure that your family stays warm but that you can afford to keep them safe. For this reason, LIHEAP does not require that you have unpaid heating bills or be enrolled in a cash assistance program.

If you are a family of four with an annual income of up to $33,075, you can qualify for assistance. It’s that simple.

If you would like more information, contact your local county assistance office or the LIHEAP hotline at:

(866) 857-7095

For TDD access, call (800) 451-5886

The Department of Public Welfare may extend or shorten the program depending upon the availability of federal funds.
