Local News

If you purchase a tower fan that is designed to circulate air, you can use it all year round to help regulate temperatures and reduce your home’s energy bills.

BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) applications are now available after the Louisiana Housing Corporation Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution to adopt.

The 2022 LIHEAP grant is federally funded and helps low-income households with their home energy bills. Louisiana, along with the other 49 states, the District of Columbia, numerous tribes, and territories participate in the LIHEAP program by submitting an annual application to the Secretary of HHS.

The amount awarded to families is determined by the household income as well as other eligibility requirements and the availability of LIHEAP is not guaranteed. Applicants must have an active heating/cooling utility account and they may only receive one LIHEAP benefit each season.

Heating: November 15 – March 15
Cooling: April 1 – September 30
Crisis: October 1 – September 30
