What is LIHEAP? The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps keep Missourians safe and healthy by helping low-income families pay their energy bills.
How does it work? LIHEAP can help you in two ways:
- Energy Assistance (EA) helps you with a one-time payment for your primary heating bills from November through March. EA does not require your energy to be shut off or threatened to be shut off.
- Winter Energy Crisis Intervention Program (ECIP) is available November through May, depending on funding. The maximum amount of help you can get through Winter ECIP is $800.
