Having trouble paying your home energy or Internet bills while you're laid off?
Help with energy bills
You might qualify for assistance from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), a federally funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills. Each state operates their own LIHEAP program with their own eligibility guidelines. Find details about your State LIHEAP Program.
