Enrollment Now Open for LIHEAP Spring Subsidy

April 17, 2023

Louisville Metro Office of Resilience and Community Services joins with Community Action Agencies across the state to begin accepting applications for the 2023 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Spring Subsidy Cooling Component. This federally-funded program is designed to help offset the cost of higher electric bills due to rising temperatures. Applications will be accepted now through June 2, 2023 or until funds are depleted.

Applicants for the LIHEAP Spring Subsidy must be residents of Jefferson County with a household income at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty guidelines (e.g. for a household of four, the gross monthly income cannot exceed $3,250.00). 

The LIHEAP Spring Subsidy component provides households a one-time benefit ranging from $38 to $200 depending on income levels and housing category. Residents can apply regardless of the status of their utility bills. The benefit amount is paid directly to the electric vendor (i.e. LG&E).

“The LIHEAP Spring Subsidy will help to take the burden off of Louisvillians,” said Tameka Laird, director of the city’s Office of Resilience and Community Services. “Our agency proudly offers financial assistance like LIHEAP to families who need it the most.  When it is combined with other Community Action services, LIHEAP is vital in helping families and communities.”

Jefferson County residents wishing to apply must schedule an appointment utilizing the automated appointment system. Appointments can be scheduled by phone by calling 502-991-8391 or online at louisvilleky.cascheduler.com. The toll-free service is currently open and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
