Head Start, employability services, emergency assistance, transportation, home weatherization, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and case management.
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a Federally-funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills.
LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of health and safety problems (such as illness, fire, or eviction).
The federal government does not provide energy assistance directly to the public. Instead, LIHEAP operates in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Indian tribes or tribal organizations, and the U.S. territories.
*NOTE: The availability of LIHEAP assistance is not guaranteed. Often most of the Federal LIHEAP funds are spent during the winter.
The Community Support Component of the Agency provides emergency short term financial assistance along with case management services and resource referrals to families or individuals faced with crisis situations, i.e. evictions, foreclosures, utility disconnections and emergency food assistance to help families move towards self-sufficiency. Through Case Management, families or individuals are provided financial counseling in consumer education and budgetary management along with referrals to other support service agencies, including Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Veterans Benefits and Unemployment Benefits.
Individuals and families are also provided employment counseling and referral services to training, educational and vocational rehabilitation training services that will enhance their abilities to become self-sufficient.
