The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps eligible low-income households with home heating costs.
The program partially pays the cost of natural gas, electricity, propane, fuel oil, coal, wood, or other fuel sources.
The program also covers:
- Weatherization services (insulation, weather stripping, etc.)
- Furnace cleaning, repair and replacement
- Chimney cleaning and inspection
- Emergency assistance
Eligibility is based on a household's income to ensure help goes to those most in need.
A household's income must be at or below 60 percent of North Dakota's median income and within these limits.
Both homeowner and renter households are eligible for the program. Individual tribal LIHEAP programs serve tribal members living on reservations in the state.
