The Georgia LIHEAP provides seniors with energy bill payment assistance and energy crisis assistance

The Fulton County Department of Senior Services in collaboration with the Fulton Action Community Action Authority (FACCA) will launch the Georgia Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 to aid eligible seniors age 65-years-old and above, homebound, and individuals with life-threatening circumstances.

The Georgia Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally-funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills. Through this program, eligible Fulton County residents may apply for financial assistance, energy crisis assistance, and long-term, low-cost residential weatherization assistance.

To qualify for help, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • U.S. citizen or legally admitted immigrant
  • Households must be at or below 60% of the area median income
  • Have full responsibility for paying the cost of energy bill, or primary home heating source

Fulton County Seniors who participate or have family members who participate in other benefit programs such as SNAP, SSI, or TANF may be automatically eligible for this program.
