All households can apply now, for the 2023-2024 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The program helps qualified low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs. LIHEAP heating support does not pay for a household’s total energy costs. However, it will provide supplemental assistance based on several factors. Those factors include total household income, household size, dwelling type, and type of heating fuel, among others. 

Sieda will be taking applications between November 1, 2023, to April 30, 2024. And now for homes with elderly or disabled. We serve the residents of Appanoose, Davis, Jefferson, Keokuk, Mahaska, Van Buren, and Wapello Counties. If you do not live in one of these counties, please click here to find your county’s Iowa Community Action Agency.

LIHEAP customers will need to furnish some form of identification, a copy of their most recent heating and electric bill, and proof of gross income for all household members for the past 30 calendar days, the most recent 12 months, or for the past calendar year (2022 Federal Taxes).

You can pick up an application at your local Sieda Neighborhood Resource Center and return to the center. Or you can apply online. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please call your local center.
