What is LIHEAP?
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low-income families pay their heating bills. LIHEAP is a grant meaning you do not have to repay it.
To receive help…
  • You don’t have to be on public assistance
  • You don’t need to have an unpaid heating bill
  • You can either rent or own your home
 LIHEAP offers both cash and crisis grants. Families may apply for:

Cash Grants

Cash grants help families pay their heating bills. The one-time payment is sent directly to your utility company or fuel provider, and it will be credited to your bill. (In some cases, the check may be mailed to you directly.) Cash grants range from around $300-$1000 and are based on household size, income, and fuel type.

Crisis Grants

Crisis grants may be available if you have an emergency situation and are in jeopardy of losing heat. You can receive more than one Crisis grant, as necessary, during the season until the maximum benefit of $1000 is reached.
How Do I Apply for LIHEAP?

To apply, you will need:

  • Names of people in your household
  • Dates of birth for all household members
  • Social Security Numbers for all household members
  • Proof of income for all household members
  • A recent heating bill


You can apply online at www.compass.state.pa.us or download the application and submit it to your local assistance office. You may also call the Statewide LIHEAP hotline at 1-866-857-7095 or call PA Relay at 711 for the hearing impaired. Applications are available at your local CAO as well.
