The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant. Households in immediate danger of being without heat can also qualify for crisis grants. The cash grant is a one-time payment sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider to be credited on your bill. These grants range from $200 to $1,000 based on household size, income, and fuel type. Remember: This is a grant and does not have to be repaid.

If you have a limited income but pay high energy bills, our weatherization program may be able to help you cut those costs and make your home more comfortable in all seasons.
An energy auditor will inspect your home and recommend certain measures such as caulking windows, weather-stripping doors, insulating the attic, or tuning the heater. The result? Your energy bills will be lower and you will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer!
The weatherization program is FREE to eligible applicants. The program may be funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Bucks County Opportunity Council. There is no charge to apply or for weatherization services.
