Pennsylvania's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to Open Nov. 2, Says Moul
10/15/2009
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. 2. Crisis grants will be available on Jan. 4, 2010. 
 
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 at the Adams County Assistance Office at 225 South Franklin Street in Gettysburg or you may call 334-6241. In Franklin County, you may contact the Franklin County Assistance Office at 620 Norland Ave., in Chambersburg, or call 262-6579.
 
Applications are also available from local utility companies and community service agencies, such as Area Agencies on Aging or community action agencies. LIHEAP cash grant applications are available online at compass.state.pa.us.
 
Income eligibility for cash grants begins at $33,075 for a family of four.
