LIHEAP has been extended until May 20th

Harrisburg, PA (KDKA)-The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) has been extended for two weeks.

The federal-funded program will remain open until May 20th.

Deputy Secretary-General Meg Sneed of the Human Services Division has urged Pennsylvania citizens to apply for LIHEAP and said water assistance programs for low-income households remain funded.

Thanks to funding from the Federal American Rescue Planning Act, the Pennsylvania Human Services Department can increase the benefits of LIHEAP during the 2021-22 season. The White House said LIHEAP would also get $ 100 million from bipartisan infrastructure laws.

The minimum grant has been raised from $ 200 to $ 500 and the largest grant has gone from $ 1,000 to $ 1,500. For those who need a LIHEAP crisis grant (those who meet poverty limits and are at risk of turning off heating), the grant limit is doubled to $ 1,200.
