Question: Who is eligible for LIHEAP?
Answer: Both homeowners and renters who are responsible for their heating bills and have a low or fixed income are eligible. The most important factor is your income limit. LIHEAP eligibility is based on 150% of the Federal Income Poverty Guideline.
Generally, if your income is below 150% of the Federal Income Poverty Guide and you pay for heating, then you qualify for LIHEAP.
