Colorado Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program Benefits

Program Description

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a Federally-funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills. LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of health and safety problems (such as illness, fire, or eviction).

The Colorado LIHEAP program may be able to offer you one or more of the following types of assistance:
  • Bill payment assistance.
  • Energy crisis assistance.
  • Weatherization and energy-related home repairs.
