Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Now Open, Says Moul

Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) announced today that Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now accepting applications for cash grants.  Crisis grants will be available on Jan. 3, 2011.   

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 are available at the Adams County Assistance Office at 225 South Franklin St. in Gettysburg or call (717) 334-6241. 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 $35,280 for a family of four.
