The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps pay winter heating bills of low-income and elderly people. Funding is provided by the Department of Health and Human Services and the State of Washington.
LIHEAP provides a one-time benefit, to eligible households, to be used for heating bills. The amount of payment is determined by income, household size and heat usage. An overdue bill or shut-off notice is not required.
You may be eligible to receive assistance under LIHEAP if your household’s combined income is at or below the following levels shown on the chart below. If your heat is included in your rent you are still eligible for the program.
