LIHEAP Utility Assistance Applications Begin January 9th

Posted: Updated:

Central Arkansas Development Council will begin taking applications for the regular Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) on Monday, January 9th.  LIHEAP helps households with home energy and heating bills.


Those wanting assistance must meet income guidelines and provide proof of all household income for the month prior to applying. Shut-off notices will not be accepted. 


Applicants are required to meet specific income guidelines. For a household of one, monthly countable income is $1,462. Countable income includes check stubs, child support, unemployment, housing utility assistance, SSI, SSA, TEA, VAS and retirement benefits.


If your household includes more than one, bring proof of income for all household members 18 years or older for the previous month, proof of child support, proof of unemployment for all household members age 18 and older, proof of social security, retirement, pensions, workman's comp or disability, proof of utility allowance and if no income, proof of how bills are being paid.


Social security numbers and birth dates for all household members are also required.  Anyone who previously received LIHEAP forms in the mail do not need to attend LIHEAP Day.
