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.
Mail-in: The below LIHEAP application can be printed and completed. The same timeframes mentioned above still apply. Complete all the necessary forms, attach copies of the required documents identified below, and mail to:
