DuPage County is accepting applications for its Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) through Wednesday, May 31.
The LIHEAP program assists low-income households by offsetting the rising cost of home energy through direct financial assistance, energy counseling, outreach and education. An overdue bill or disconnect notice is not required to receive LIHEAP assistance. Emergency assistance is available to eligible households whose utility service is in danger of disconnection or has been disconnected and for homeowners whose furnace is non-operational or determined unsafe to operate.
All households, regardless of citizenship status, that meet the household's combined gross income for the 30 days prior to application must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.
