The objective of the LIHEAP is to provide one-time assistance with the rising cost of energy used to heat the homes of low income, elderly and handicapped households in the three-county area. To be eligible, a household must be responsible for their fuel bill, and be within the poverty guideline.

Delta HRA will provide assistance on a fast track to clients who have not been able to pay their bill due to a combination of uncontrollable circumstances, one of which must be a cut-off notice or having disconnected utilities. There are other criteria that will constitute uncontrollable circumstances.

This program is designed to assist low income, elderly or handicapped clients in the tri-county area served by Delta to reduce their energy costs mainly through the stoppage of air infiltration.
