​Get to Know LIHEAP​


​LIHEAP stands for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance ​Program.​

It may be able to help you pay yo​​​ur energy bill. ​​​​

LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps low-income households pay for heating or cooling in their homes. 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 awarded California additional funding to help households struggling to make ends meet, and many Californians in need may qualify.​

​​LIHEAP can offer a one-time payment to help you:​​​

  • ​Pay your heating or cooling bills, even if you use wood, propane, or oil.​

  • In an emergency or energy crisis, such as a utility disconnection.​​

In addition to help with paying ​​your energy bill, LIHEAP can also provide in-home weatherization services for:

  • ​Improved energy efficiency, and

  • Health and safety.​
