Energy Assistance Provides Help with Heating and Cooling Bills


Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is designed to assist low income individuals who pay a large proportion of their income in meeting their home energy needs. This Program targets elderly, disabled and households with young children.

The State of Missouri Family Support Division applies for and receives LIHEAP funding and then contracts with Missouri Community Action Agencies to conduct the eligibility determination for LIHEAP applications.

LIHEAP has two components: Energy Assistance (EA) and Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP). Eligibility requirements for LIHEAP are based on income, household size, available resources and responsibility for payment of home energy costs.
