What is the LIHEAP Program?
The LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) is a federally funded program that provides support to needy low-income households for utility bill payments. Federal funds are distributed to each state and the individual states then administer the program and funds distribution. LIHEAP pays partial energy bills for eligible families.
The program usually makes payments directly to your local utility company. Because the LIHEAP program provides support on a first come-first serve basis, it is important to apply as early as possible as some states provide no further support once their federal funding has run out.
What is the WAP Program
WAP, or the Weathization Assistance Program was created in 1978 to help low income families reduce their energy costs. The WAP program provides for home improvement in the form of insulating walls and ceilings, repairing broken windows, caulking and weatherproofing and by replacing inefficient heating and cooling appliances.
