The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) may be able to help you.
Households with a person age 60 or older or a disabled person receiving services through the Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) who currently receives Food and Nutrition Services and received LIEAP during the 2019-2020 LIEAP season last year may qualify to receive an Automated Payment this LIEAP Season. These households will be notified of eligibility in November and do not need to apply for this benefit.
Beginning December 1, 2020 any household with a person age 60 or older or disabled person receiving DAAS services who did not receive notice of an Automated Payment are encouraged to apply practicing social distancing by submitting a paper application through the U.S. Postal Service or via fax to their local Department of Social Services. Applications may also be dropped off at the local Department of Social Services. Applicants may contact their local DSS for information on how to obtain a paper application.
All other households may submit applications beginning January 2, 2021. The application period continues through March 31, 2021 or until funds are exhausted. Households do not have to go into the agency to apply.
