The 2021 – 2022 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) has been established to help qualifying low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs for the winter heating season. General applications will be taken November 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022. Households with a member over 60 and/or disabled can apply in October.
This program is not designed to pay household’s total energy costs. The program will provide supplemental assistance based on several factors. Those factors include total household income, household size, dwelling type, and type of heating fuel, among others. If you have already applied and have been approved this winter season, you cannot re-apply.
