The 2020-2021 LIHEAP Program is OPEN and accepting applications
LIHEAP is a federal program that provides financial heating assistance to qualified households. The assistance is available to help customers that are at/below 150% of the federal poverty income guidelines and demonstrate a heating burden.
The LIHEAP program provides cash and crisis assistance by a direct payment to your account with a vendor, such as a utility like PECO. LIHEAP allocates a portion of the grant assistance for emergencies that include reinstating service that has been shut-off for non-payment, fuel payments, and repairing leaking pipes and broken furnaces.
Homeowners, renters, roomers and subsidized housing tenants may be eligible. Last year LIHEAP helped over 40,000 PECO customers totaling more than $18 million in assistance.
