The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is administered by THDA and is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
. The program is designed to assist eligible households in meeting the rising cost of home energy. In granting benefits, priority is given to the household with the lowest income in respect to household size.
The program provides up to $600 beginning each October through September 30, or until funds are exhausted.
Household members that are elderly, are handicapped, have children under six years of age, or have experienced an uncontrollable circumstance experienced within the last 90 days prior to intake may be eligible for LIHEAP.
