Program Offers Assistance with Paying Heat Bills

Qualifying residents who need assistance paying their heating bills this winter can apply for state and federal assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), according to the village of Wheaton press release.

 To qualify, residents must not exceed 150% of the poverty level, which equates to a monthly income less than $1,436 for one person, $1,939 for two people, and $2,944 for four people (or add $502.50 for each additional household member).

Residents must be a customer on record with the utility company, and they must submit complete documentation of income, proof of Social Security Number, utility bills and lease. LIHEAP grant applications are administered through DuPage County. Applications are taken on an ongoing basis by appointment.

Contact DuPage County’s Energy Assistance at 630-407-6500 or e-mail liheap@dupageco.org.
