Are you having trouble keeping your home warm? The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (commonly called LIHEAP or HEAP) provides money to low income homeowners and renters to help pay heating costs.
The program is not intended to pay for all heating costs, but to assist in paying the heating bills. The average benefit in Maine in 2003-2004 was about $441, and the program served about 47,000 households.
