1 min read

This program provides your household with an annual cash grant to help you meet your home heating and cooling costs. The grants are paid either directly to you or to your energy company. Grants can be used for attic insulation, floors, exposed water pipes, and the tune up, repair, or replacement of heating units or air conditioners in your home.

Please note: The amount of funding for this program will vary from state-to-state and there is no guarantee that funds will be available when you apply. Specifically, availability of funds will depend on several factors such as the demand for this program in your area and the timing of when you submit your application during your state’s enrollment period.


How do I apply?

You can apply online or print and fill out an application form (if these options are available in your state). Otherwise, please contact your local LIHEAP office for more information about the program and to apply.
