Learn About Federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Also known as LIHEAP, the program provides federally funded assistance to reduce the costs of home energy bills, energy crises, weatherization, and post-disaster needs.  In fiscal year 2023, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invested $4 billion for grantees in each state and in five territories, with set-aside for tribal assistance.  In turn, these grantees assist households with low incomes, particularly those that have a high home energy burden and/or have members who are elderly, disabled, and/or a young child.  Any community-based organization can use ACF’s Cooling Season Outreach toolkit with fliers, videos, and social media content in several languages.  There’s also a LIHEAP search tool that individuals can use to find help.
