LIHEAP supplements the high cost of winter heating for low-income households, provides emergency furnace repairs or replacement for income-qualifying homeowners. Households with income levels at or below 175% of the poverty level are eligible for benefits.
Last year, we processed more than 6,000 applications in Black Hawk, Buchanan, and Grundy counties! New applicants represented 16% of those applications.
Now we anticipate another busy year. Applicants are served on a first-come first serve basis, so apply early!
For this new application year it is anticipated that the last day applications will be accepted on April 30, 2020. The application will be available online after November 1, 2019 and you will be able to print out and complete the application. Once you have done so, you may bring the completed application, along with any other required documents, to your local Operation Threshold office.
Forms will be posted and the link activated after November 1, 2019
