Who is eligible for LIHEAP?

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.
