Borough News Article, February 2017 Edition, Pg 10

Applications are being accepted for Pennsylvania’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) through March 31 for home heating assistance to qualified low- and fixed-income individuals and families.

LIHEAP offers assistance in the form of a cash grant, sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat.  A crisis grant can be used to pay for oil, for example, or repair a furnace.

Income eligibility for heating assistance for a household of one is $17,820, increasing incrementally with a family of 10’s income eligibility set at $73,815.  Each additional person over 10 raises the limit by $6,240.
