LIHEAP, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, helps Americans who have trouble paying for their heating at home. People can apply from now until April 6, 2018. There are qualifications you must meet such as the amount of people in your home and annual income, but the program is for any heating option i.e. oil, natural gas, or electric. The money you receive from the program goes straight to your supplier. Applications can be made online at www.compass.state.pa.us, the LIHEAP hotline at 1-866-857-7095, or visit your local representative such as Maureen Madden or Rosemary Brown. The application process is lengthy, so don't be afraid to contact your local government agency for help.
