We support the Division of Family & Children Services through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which is available every year from November to May and helps low-income households pay for heating and cooling their homes. The purpose of LIHEAP is to provide appropriate and timely financial assistance.

Applications for all LIHEAP services are made through a local Community Action Agency. The assistance is available in all 159 counties in Georgia.
