Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

Assists low-income households by offsetting the rising cost of home energy through direct financial assistance, energy counseling, outreach and education. An overdue bill or disconnect notice is not required to receive LIHEAP assistance. Emergency assistance is available to eligible households whose utility service is in danger of disconnection or has been disconnected and for homeowners whose furnace is non-operational or determined unsafe to operate.


Applications are taken by appointment at any of the Township General Assistance Offices or directly from DuPage County during the application times as noted below.
