LIHEAP Heating Assistance

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low-income households with fuel bills during the winter. Eligible households receive a grant to help pay their heating bills. Grants are paid directly to the utility or fuel company.

The program generally runs from mid-October thru April. Read more at the Rhode Island Department of Human Services.


LIHEAP is available to individuals and families, whether they own or rent.
