Applications are now available to help customers pay for bills this winter. Applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) are being accepted now in Iowa for elderly and disabled people. Everyone else can begin applying on November 1st.

Last year, approximately 90,000 households received benefits from the program. The average payment was $445 per household.

LIHEAP funds are received from a grant from the United States Department of Health and Human Services. To be eligible, an applicant must be at or below 175 percent of the 2015 federal poverty guidelines.
