The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, is designed to help homeowners and renters with their primary heating costs during the winter months.

Upper Des Moines Opportunity Outreach Specialist Deb Weir says applications are now being taken.  "Everybody that's having a hardship or just falling behind or just a little bit tight, come on in or call and make an appointment.  We take 3 months proof of income, that would be child support, regular salary and wages, social security and unemployment.  Then they would just come in and we take the 3 months proof of income, gas and electric bill and social security for everyone that we scan into the system. 

For details on the LIHEAP application process, contact the Upper Des Moines Outreach Office in the Great Lakes Mall in Spirit Lake at 712-336-1112.
