The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) describes the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) as a program that “helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist families with energy costs. LIHEAP provide federally funded assistance in managing costs associated with:

  • Home energy bills

  • Energy crises

  • Weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs

LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer through programs that reduce the risk of health and safety problems that arise from unsafe heating and cooling practices.”
