Pennsylvania Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

The Pennsylvania Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low income people pay their heating bills through energy assistance grants. People need not have an unpaid bill to receive energy assistance. People can receive this money without being on welfare.
No lien is placed on the person's property if they receive this help.

If a person is eligible for LIHEAP, a payment will be sent directly to the utility/fuel dealer, and the payment will be credited on the person's bill. In some cases, a check may be mailed to the recipient.

Crisis Grants

Additional money is available to individuals if they have an emergency situation and are in jeopardy of losing their heat. Emergency situations include:

broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced
lack of fuel
termination of utility service
danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated

Assistance with energy emergency situations is available 24 hours a day. For more information, contact your local County Assistance Office.

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

How Catholic Charities Helps
The federally funded Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps households that need assistance to pay the cost of home energy.

Catholic Charities has administered this program for over 25 years.

Homeowners and renters, at 200% of federal poverty guidelines, can apply. All heating and cooling sources, including electricity, gas, oil, kerosene, wood, propane, natural gas,and coal are eligible. Although the program does not pay for all heating costs, it does provide an important financial supplement. Help for home cooling is provided during the summer months, if funding is available.

Heating assistance applications are processed from October 1 to March 31. Funds from the federal government do not usually arrive until late December, when energy benefits become available.
