If anyone has a heating bill or is responsible for paying the costs of heating their home, they may be eligible for a LIHEAP cash grant.
If anyone has received a “shut-off” notice from PECO, even if they have already applied for a LIHEAP cash grant, they may be eligible for a LIHEAP crisis grant.
Attached is a flier (pages 1 and 2) explaining eligibility for LIHEAP cash and crisis grants, as well as programs available from PECO to reduce the utility bills of low income households.
***The application deadline for applying for either a LIHEAP cash or crisis grant or both has been extended to May 1st.
Remember, your client does not need to be in crisis (have no heat or have received a shut-off notice) to be eligible for a LIHEAP cash grant. LIHEAP cash grants are paid to people who have a home (or apartment) heating responsibility.
