The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps families with their home energy bills. Assistance is available once a year, and emergency funds are set aside for families facing a shut-off of energy services. The grants are awarded on a points-based system to ensure that the most needy are assisted first, and the subsidies are paid directly to the energy provider.
