Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

LIHEAP has been designed to assist low-income families in Spartanburg and Cherokee counties with their energy costs. This program is available both in the winter and summer to help with heating and cooling needs.

Applications for Direct Assistance
are taken from fall until winter for heating needs, and from spring until summer for cooling needs. Direct Assistance is received at a later date by mail in the form of a certificate, which can be redeemed by the vendor to assist with the families’ energy cost.

Emergency Program
is available to for low income families who may find themselves without heat or in danger of having their heat disconnected, and are without funds to pay their energy bill. Emergency assistance may be available for cooling if medically necessary. This assistance is treated as an emergency, and families are served the same day their application is completed.

Project Heat
serves families in need of heating assistance, and is funded by Duke power and private donations.

 

Piedmont Community Action no longer has the LIHEAP Program.
