"No Pennsylvanian should ever have to worry that their heat will be shut off during the coldest and darkest months of the year." - Pennsylvania Department of Human Services
Help is available to keep qualified households safe and warm this winter. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally funded program administered by the Department of Human Services (DHS) that provides assistance for home heating bills so Pennsylvanians can stay warm and safe during the winter months. Assistance is available for both renters and homeowners. LIHEAP helps some of the Commonwealth's most vulnerable - children, older Pennsylvanians, people with disabilities and families with low incomes - make ends meet.
For Paper Applications: Call the LIHEAP Helpline at 1-866-857-7095 to request a paper application. Paper applications can also be downloaded from the DHS LIHEAP web page.
County Assistance Office (CAO) services are available if clients cannot access online services or need assistance that cannot be accessed through the COMPASS Website.
