LIHEAP Energy Assistance
Low Income Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) helps keep adults age 60 and older safe and healthy through initiatives that assist with energy costs. The program at the Adult Activity Center is only for households with at least one individual who is 60+. The person who is 60+ must be the one to apply for the waitlist for energy assistance. Applications for Senior or Disabled households who received LIHEAP in 2020 will be mailed out by Oct. 15 and will start processing at the end of October. The LIHEAP waitlist will open up to all the households on Nov. 1, 2021, at 9 a.m.
If you received a LIHEAP energy assistant payment last year, you will receive a letter soon. This will allow you to apply for Energy Assistance by mail for this heating season. A pink LIHEAP application will be mailed to you on Oct. 15. If you don’t receive it by Oct. 28, please call our office at 541-736-4406 . By submitting the pink application by mail, you do not need to call to get on a waitlist or attend an in-office appointment unless you are contacted.
Start preparing now: Gather these documents so you are ready when you receive the pink LIHEAP application.
- Proof of your household’s total gross income for the full month of September.
- A copy of a recent utility bill or statement, for all heating utility companies/vendors even if you only want your payment to go towards one source.
- A copy of your recent water bill (we may have funding to help with Water and Sewer)
Income documents: We don’t accept bank statements or tax documents as proof of Social Security, retirement or pension income. Please collect documents showing pre-tax income. If you or another household member receives Social Security retirement or pension income, but you don’t have proof of this income, request a Benefit Verification Letter from the company that provides the income. For Social Security income, you must provide a 2021 Award or Benefit Letter. We cannot accept 2020 or 2022 Social Security documents.
To contact the Social Security Office to request a “Benefit Verification Letter” you can:
- Set up an online account on the Social Security website at SSA.gov.
- Call the local Lane County Social Security office at 1-866-563-3450
Incomplete applications: If you submit your application without all required documents, there will be a delay in processing. LIHEAP applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis through Dec. 31 as funding permits. Applications received after Dec. 31 are denied.
Always continue to pay your energy bills! Don’t fall behind! Funding is limited and there is no guarantee of receiving a LIHEAP payment.
- Contact Terre Olsen at 541-736-4406 for more information.
