Winter is coming, and the cost of heating a home may be particularly burdensome to people on fixed incomes. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) can help both homeowners and renters.

“Energy assistance is an essential safety net,” said Steve Gardner, AARP associate state director for communications. “Pennsylvanians should not have to choose between buying food and medicine or staying warm this winter.” 

Applications are being accepted for both monthly cash assistance and crisis grants to help with emergencies such as a furnace failure or utility shut-off. Questions? Call the toll-free hotline at 866-857-7095.
