The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps eligible customers pay for their heating service through grants that do not need to be repaid.

Even if you qualified for LIHEAP last year, you still must reapply. LIHEAP funds are still available for customers meeting income guidelines.

We have compiled a list of locations where customers in Tennessee can apply for LIHEAP.

Hamilton County residents can view this video to learn more about a federal grant that can help pay an energy bill.
