Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

The Sangamon County Community Resources Office (SCCR) operates the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), for income-eligible households.  The LIHEAP is designed to assist low-income households with winter energy services.  A one-time benefit is provided to eligible households to be used for energy bills. 

There are two ways to apply, either on-site at the SCCR office or mail the completed application, found on this website, to SCCR.  

On-site:  Beginning October 1, priority appointments for seniors and people with disabilities can be made over the phone (217/535-3120) Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  In November, those groups as well as disconnected households and households with children under 6 years may call for appointments.  Beginning in December, any income-eligible household may call for an appointment for services.
