LIHEAP Applications Being Accepted

Wed 11-18-2015

(Spirit Lake)-- Low-income renters and homeowners are being reminded that applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, are being accepted between now and April 30th, 2016.

The program was established to help qualifying low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs during the winter heating season. The program isn't designed to pay a household's total energy costs. Instead it provides supplemental assistance based on total household income, household size, dwelling type, type of heating fuel, and other factors.

Anyone who has applied and been approved for this season cannot re-apply.

For questions and to arrange an appointment to sign up, you can call the Upper Des Moines Opportunity Office in Spirit Lake at 336-1112. The office is located on the southeast side of the Great Lakes Mall.
