Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Now Open

" "

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), has just opened for intake on October 1st. LIHEAP can help residents at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

For example, a household of four with a monthly income of $4,292 or below may qualify and should apply. LIHEAP recipients may receive help to pay winter heating bills (even if heat is included in the rent), medically necessary cooling costs, weatherization, emergency heating or water heater repairs, and LIHEAP emergency assistance at the end of the heating season.

LIHEAP information and applications are available at all of PSE&G’s walk-in customer service centers or online.

More program information can be found on the attached flyer (PDF). For additional help or more information on where to apply, families in need can also call “211” which is available 24/7 and provides resource information beyond energy assistance.
