LIEAP and WAP
(Low Income Energy Assistance Program and the Weatherization Assistance Program)
LIEAP is a state and federally funded program helping people pay home heating bills November through May. People who are approved for assistance through LIEAP may also be eligible for weatherization services to make their homes more energy efficient and further lower heating costs. The program is open to home owners and renters, and it helps cover the costs of electric, natural gas, propane, wood, diesel heating oil, coal and pellets used for heating a home.
The Weatherization Assistance Program helps households save money on home heating costs by improving energy efficiency.
Weatherizing homes often means adding more insulation, sealing leaks around doors and windows, and it always includes basic health and safety checks. An energy audit determines which weatherization measures will get the biggest bang for the weatherization dollars spent on each home. Weatherization can save 5-25 percent on home heating bills.
Applications for LIEAP program are available beginning October 1, 2020 and are accepted until March 31, 2021.
DFS accepts Weatherization Assistance Program applications every day of the year.
