The Pennsylvania Low Income
Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally-funded program that helps low income
households pay their heating bills through energy assistance grants.
LIHEAP is administered by the Department of Public Welfare and consists of three components:
- cash benefits to help eligible low-income households pay for their home-heating fuel;
- crisis payments, if needed, to resolve weather-related, supply shortage, and other
household energy-related emergencies; and
- energy conservation and weatherization measures to address long-range solutions to
the home-heating problems of low-income households.
LIHEAP is not a public assistance program. Eligible low-income households will not have
liens placed on their property, nor will other assets affect their eligibility for LIHEAP
benefits. In addition, eligibility for public assistance and grant amounts is not affected
by receipt of LIHEAP benefits.
