Program Description

The Georgia Energy Assistance Program (EAP), known nationally as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), is a Federally-funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills. LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of health and safety problems (such as illness, fire, or eviction).

The Georgia EAP program may be able to offer you one or more of the following types of assistance:

  • Bill payment assistance.
  • Energy crisis assistance.
  • Weatherization and energy-related home repairs.

Program Requirements

The LIHEAP program in your community determines if your household’s income qualifies for the program.

You must be a resident of the state of Georgia and you must need financial assistance with home energy costs.

In order to qualify, you must also have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below 60 percent of the State Median Income:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $21,881
2 $28,614
3 $35,347
4 $42,079
5 $48,812
6 $55,545
7 $56,807
8 $58,069

*For households with more than eight people, add $1,262 per additional person.

A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or certain needs-tested Veterans benefits may be automatically eligible.
