Learn more about the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
The Department of Social Services (DSS) recently announced additional funding to help low-income Missourians stay cool this summer. The funds are being distributed through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). This influx of financial aid is intended to help program participants pay their summer cooling bills from June 1 through September 30, 2020.
Use this checklist to see if you qualify for assistance with your cooling bills:
- Are responsible for paying home cooling costs?
- Do you have under $3,000 in bank accounts, retirement accounts, or investments?
- Do you have a household income of 135% or less of the federal poverty level (a monthly income of $2,400 for a family of three or $2,897 for a family of four)?
- Are you a US citizen or legally admitted for permanent residence?
If you answered yes to all the above, you are likely eligible for this program!
