LIHEAP Application Period Begins Nov. 2

HARRISBURG - Rep. Sandra Major (R-Susquehanna/Wayne/Wyoming) said that Pennsylvania's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) will open for the 2009-10 heating season on Nov. 2.

"Both the calendar and the thermometer indicate that the heating season is upon us and a weak economy is making it difficult for many families to pay their heating bills," Major said.

LIHEAP provides cash grants to help low-income households pay for home heating fuel and crisis grants to address heating emergencies. While the Department of Public Welfare originally considered opening LIHEAP on Dec. 1 due to funding concerns, a recent increase in federal funding will allow it to open Nov. 2.

The program is funded with federal money and run by the Commonwealth.

During the 2008-09 LIHEAP season, approximately 547,000 families were helped through cash grants and more than 202,000 families received crisis assistance.

For the upcoming heating season, the crisis portion of the program will open on Jan. 4, not simultaneously with the cash grant program.

Cash grants are based on income, family size, type of heating fuel and region. Crisis grants are provided to resolve heating emergencies, such as furnace failures or unexpected fuel shortages.

In addition to proof of income and household size, applicants must provide a recent bill or a statement from their fuel dealer verifying their customer status and the type of fuel that they use.

After the program opens for the season, applications will be available at county assistance offices, local utility companies and community service agencies, such as Area Agencies on Aging or community action agencies. Applications for LIHEAP cash grants will also be available online at

Household sizes and income limits for LIHEAP's 2009-10 season are: one person, $16,245; two people, $21,855; three people, $27,465; four people $33,075; and five people $38,685. For each additional person, add $5,610.
