LIHEAP is a federal program that provides assistance to individuals who are having trouble paying their electric, natural gas or other heating bills. The LIHEAP program provides cash and crisis assistance by a direct payment to a vendor, such as a utility like PECO. LIHEAP also has money allocated for emergencies including reinstating service that has been shut-off for non-payment, fuel payments, and repairing leaking pipes and broken furnaces.
Homeowners, renters, roomers and subsidized housing tenants may be eligible. Last year LIHEAP helped over 40,000 PECO customers totaling more than $16 million in assistance.
