Iowa customers: Get peace of mind with energy assistance

LIHEAP and crisis funding

The federally funded Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps qualified households with a one-time payment toward heating costs. LIHEAP accepts applications on a first-come, first-served basis between Nov. 1 and April 30 each year.

Additional crisis funds may be available through LIHEAP for households who meet income guidelines and can demonstrate financial hardship. You can apply for crisis funds even if you have already received LIHEAP funding.
