LIHEAP (Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program) is a federally funded program that provides assistance to low-income households in Clayton, Fayette and Henry Counties.  This is a FREE program.  LIHEAP makes a one-time payment toward your primary heating source for eligible families.  The LIHEAP funds can assist with starting new service, stopping disconnections and a delivery of propane gas.  LIHEAP can also assist with account balances that are current as long as the household is qualified for the program.  Applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
