Home Energy Assistance Program
Release Date: December 06, 2005

HEA or LIHEAP now accepting applications
 for ‘05-‘06 winter

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps cover high heating costs

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally-funded, state-administered program that provides an annual grant to income-qualified people. Those whose income is 175 percent of the federal poverty level and under can qualify.

Last year, New Jersey received $72.4 million in federal funds for regular and emergency assistance. This served more than 156,000 families at an average $530 each. This year’s allocation, however, is only 95 percent of that, or $68.5 million. This, while energy costs are estimated to rise 48 percent over last year.

Applications may be made through NORWESCAP at the Franklin Office, 973-383-6020 or the Phillipsburg Office: 1-888-454-4778.

NORWESCAP will accept applications for LIHEAP through March 31, 2006.
