Indiana low income home energy assistance
Low and moderate income households in Indiana can get help with paying for their heating bills by applying to the state's Energy Assistance Program, which is known as LIHEAP. While the federal government provides the funding for the program, the state of Indiana manages it.
The program is managed by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. It provides mainly low-income households with direct cash grants as well as other financial assistance to continue their utility services during the winter heating season. So funds are provided to help people pay their bills, as well as prevent any type of service disconnection
The program is administered at the local county and government level by Community Action agencies around the state. Outreach offices and locations operated by these community action agencies are located in every county and Indiana families and residents can contact their local office to learn more about LIHEAP, and they can also request an application and apply. The contact information for some offices is below. If yours is not listed, just call your local office.
The average benefit provided by the low income energy program is around $360 per year and is paid in a lump sum directly to the applicant’s utility or natural gas company. Last year LIHEAP helped almost 200,000 households across Indiana.
