Program Description

The mission of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is to assist low income households, particularly those with the lowest incomes that pay a high proportion of household income for home energy, in meeting their immediate home energy needs.

LIHEAP provides funding to help low income households make home heating more affordable, avoid disconnection of utility services during the winter, and maintain a warm, safe, and healthy environment for households with young children, the elderly, and the disabled.

LIHEAP provides a one-time utility payment on behalf of qualified households. Forms of assistance available include: financial assistance towards a household’s heating energy bill and emergency assistance if a household’s home energy service is shut off or about to be shut off. Currently the program is available November 1 through March 31, depending on funding availability. Crisis Funding may be available outside of this time period.

Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Idaho and you must need financial assistance for home energy costs.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)

4 $37,650
5 $44,130
