Funds Still Available for Wake's LIEAP Program

The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP), a Wake County Human Services program, is continuing to accept applications through today, Tuesday, March 31, 2015.

LIEAP is a federally funded program that provides a one-time vendor payment to help eligible households pay their heating bills.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Low-income requirement, defined as less than 130% of federal poverty level
  • Reserves at or below $2,200
  • Responsibility for the household heating bills

The following items are required at the time of application: applicant's photo ID, current heating bill, Social Security numbers for all household members, income verification for anyone living in the home, and most recent bank statements.

Wake County also provides crisis assistance to households that are without heat or in jeopardy of losing their heat for non-payment. Crisis assistance is based on the availability of funds.
