Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to Open Nov. 1, Says Moul
10/28/2011
HARRISBURG – Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) announced today that Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) will begin accepting applications for cash grants Nov. 1. Crisis grants will also be available on that date.

LIHEAP helps low-income 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 will be available in Adams County at:

Adams County Assistance Office
225 South Franklin St., Gettysburg
(717) 334-6241.

In Franklin County:

Franklin County Assistance Office
620 Norland Ave., Chambersburg
(717) 262-6579

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.
