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.
There are several ways to apply to the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program:
1. Pick Up an Application at your local ETHRA office
2. Call 865-691-2551 EXT 4825 for an application to be mailed to you
3. Print one from our website and email the completed the application to LIHEAP@ethra.org
Applications are accepted on a monthly basis year round from October 1st - September 30th.
Crisis applications are taken year round, and are dependent on the availability of funds.
The amount of assistance is $300-$1000 depending on need and availability.
For a regular application, you can call 865-691-2551 EXT 4825 for the ETHRA Energy Assistance Hotline.
