EBCAP is still accepting applications for the 2024 LIHEAP program! Deadline to apply is May 1, 2024.

What is LIHEAP?: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a seasonal program that helps households stay warm in the winter through programs that reduce the risk of health and safety problems that arise from unsafe heating practices. A one-time supplemental grant is sent directly to the utility company who then credit the client’s account for the amount specified. Eligible clients also qualify for a reduced electric rate.
