Tri-Town Community Action Agency is now accepting applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program [LiHEAP] to help local residents defray some of their upcoming winter heating costs.
The LiHEAP program, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, provides grants to reduce home heating costs for oil, natural gas, electric, propane, wood, kerosene and coal to income eligible families even if heat is included in the rent.
Grants are available for households that meet state income requirements; a family of three with annual income of $45,034 would be eligible. See chart in the LiHEAP tab
for more details.
To qualify, applicants must provide:
• Income documentation for at least four weeks.
• Current electric bill
• Current heating bill
• Social Security Cards for all household members
• Birth Certificates for all household members under 18
• Photo ID for all adult household members
• If rental, copy of lease or rental agreement
• If homeowner, copy of mortgage or property tax bill
