What Help is Available?
You may be able to get help paying for part of your winter heating costs if you meet income guidelines. Community Action of Eastern Iowa will help you apply for benefits through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Until you apply, we cannot tell you how much money you will receive. The amount is based on income level, family size, the type of fuel you use to heat your home, and other factors.
How Can I Apply?
You can apply at any of our offices. Please view this list of documents you will need to bring.
If you applied for energy assistance last year, you might be able to complete your application online if you prefer.
What if I Have a Disconnection Notice?
If you have received a disconnection notice, or you are already disconnected from your power source, we can help you develop a plan. Being without power, especially in the winter, is dangerous. Do not wait. Come in right away if you have a disconnection notice.
