Louisiana Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP)
Energy costs significantly influence the affordability of housing for everyone, often impacting the basic subsistence requirements of a household. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides eligible households with assistance in meeting their monthly utility bills. Priority is given those who may be elderly, disabled, have families with children, and/or have the highest energy consumption. To be eligible for this benefit program, you must be a resident of Louisiana and you must need financial assistance with home energy costs. A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as SNAP, SSI, TANF, automatically meets the eligibility requirement.
