Heating assistance available

Insulation photoAre you or someone you know having difficulty paying home heating bills? If so, there is a federal program that could help.

 

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), administered by the N.D. Department of Human Services and county social service offices, provides home energy assistance to eligible low-income households.

 

Applications are accepted from Oct. 1-May 31 of each heating season.  Applications are available at county social service offices and must be completed each season.
 

Eligible households are encouraged to apply for assistance for:

HEATING: LIHEAP can pay for a portion of fuel or electricity used to heat your home. The amount of benefit depends on your income, the type and size of your home and the type of fuel used to heat your home.

WEATHERIZATION: The weatherization program helps low-income families make their homes and apartments energy efficient.

FURNACE AND CHIMNEY CLEANING: The program can pay to clean and inspect your furnace and/or chimney.

EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE: LIHEAP funds are available when there is a home energy emergency that may threaten the life of your family.

FURNACE REPLACEMENTS: Partial payment for the cost of a furnace is made possible for an eligible household. Furnaces may be replaced if they are unsafe, not operating or cannot be repaired.

ENERGY COST REDUCTION DEVICES: Funds are sometimes available to help with installation costs of energy-reducing devices to qualify for lower electric heat rates.
