The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides qualifying individuals and families with help paying cooling costs in summer months.

Applications will be accepted starting July 11 on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Businesses are excluded from receiving the benefit.

LIHEAP is not administered by your local cooperative, but rather through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and it is operated by community action agencies.

The amount of financial help available varies based on income, the number of people in a household and other factors. LIHEAP eligibility in Arkansas is based on both 60% of State Median Income and 150% of Federal Poverty Guidelines.

The program is designed to lower the energy burden for low-income households that pay a high proportion of household income for home energy costs, by paying benefits for home energy bills, according to DHHS.

Contact your local Community Action Agency (CAA) to check eligibility. Visit the Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA) website for a list of CAA offices around the state.
