LIHEAP Program Set to Open Nov. 4, 2013

HARRISBURG – Eligible Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to apply for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) beginning Monday, Nov. 4, 2013, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) said today.

The program helps individuals pay their heating bills through home heating energy assistance grants and crisis grants and is a federally funded program.

The income limit for LIHEAP is unchanged from last year and will remain at 150 percent of the federal poverty level income guidelines.

The Department of Public Welfare is sending all LIHEAP clients who applied online last year a postcard notice encouraging them to reapply online. Previous recipients of LIHEAP will have the opportunity to apply prior to the LIHEAP program opening date of Monday, Nov. 4.

Prior applicants who did not apply online last year will still be mailed paper applications. By way of the new postcard, clients will be provided with a pre-registration number giving them access to an online application that has already been filled out using last year’s data. Clients will simply have to ensure online information is correct and update anything that may have changed, such as an address.

All online applications are sent straight to the county office to determine eligibility, thereby eliminating mail and hand processing time.
