WV DHHR Extends Application Period for Emergency Energy Assistance Program

May 31st, 2022 by WCBC Radio

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) extended the deadline for applications for the Emergency Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) to June 17, 2022, or until funds are exhausted. The federally funded program assists eligible state residents in paying home heating bills.

Residents whose primary source of heat is either gas or electricity must provide their disconnection notice or past due utility bill when applying for Emergency LIEAP. Those using other primary heating sources or bulk fuel may qualify for assistance if their heating fuel is at a low level during the application period.
