LIHEAP, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, is a federally-funded program that provides financial assistance to help eligible, low-income households meet their home heating needs. LIHEAP vendors are defined as any business that supplies energy, such as rental facilities where utilities are included in the rent or provides home heating fuel to individuals applying for the LIHEAP program. Examples of home heating fuel include oil, kerosene, propane, bottled gas, wood, electric or natural gas.

Vendor paperwork will provide information about changes in the LIHEAP program this year and the LIHEAP staff members are happy to address any questions. Vendors who participated in the 2017-2018 program should receive a packet in the mail to update records for this year’s participation.

The Subsidy Component of LIHEAP begins Nov. 5 and ends Dec. 14, 2018.  Please contact Brandon Oneal at (502) 574-6082,  or visit https://louisvilleky.gov/government/resilience-and-community-services/low-income-home-energy-assistance-program-liheap for more information.
