LIHEAP is the energy assistance program that provides eligible low-income households with help paying their utility bills. Benefits are based on several conditions including, total household income, the number of people living in the home, the cost of the utility bill, and whether the applicant receives a utility allowance.
Currently eligible applicants in Louisiana may receive up to three (3) separate benefits per year depending on each applicant's circumstances. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis with special attention given to households with members over 60 years of age, household members with disabilities and households with children age five and under.
Applications are taken from the time funds become available until all funds are exhausted. LIHEAP benefits are available in every parish in Louisiana. LIHEAP applicants must be able to provide proof of income for all household members, have a copy of all household members' social security cards, a copy of the utility bill(s), and verification they reside at the address on the utility bill.
LACAP administers the LIHEAP program in partnership with the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency.
