Heating assistance (LIHEAP) applications will be accepted online or by calling your nearest Sieda Neighborhood Resource Centers to start the process. We have Sieda locations in seven counties; Appanoose, Davis, Jefferson, Keokuk, Mahaska, Van Buren, and Wapello. However, applications are accepted till the last business day in April which is April 30th, 2024. If you do not live in one of our seven counties, please click here to find your county’s Iowa Community Action Agency.
For the nearest Sieda Neighborhood Resource Centers:
Households may complete their application online during the application season starting November 1st. A new account may need to be created for the 2023-2024 heating season.
Whether your household applies online or through a Sieda Center, you will need verification of gross household income. Income will be needed for everyone over 18 years old for the past 30 days, SSI letter, SSDI letter, or the 2022 Federal Taxes. As well as the home’s most recent gas and electric bill. We will also need to verify Social Security numbers for all household members.
