Energy Assistance Grants

LIHEAP is Closed

LIHEAP is open every heating season between November and April. 
Pennsylvania’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) offers FREE energy assistance grants to income-qualified customers. You do not have to have an unpaid bill to receive these grants.

If you are eligible to receive a LIHEAP cash grant, a payment will be sent directly to UGI and it will be credited to your natural gas account. Additional money is available through LIHEAP crisis grants, which are given to those in emergency situations who are in danger of losing their heat. Emergency situations include:

  • Broken heating equipment or leaking gas lines, which must be fixed or replaced.
  • Being without fuel.
  • Utility service termination.
  • In danger of being without fuel or having utility service terminated.

Assistance for those in emergency situations is available 24 hours a day. You may contact your local county assistance office for more information.
