Senator Doris Turner Urging Applications To LIHEAP

State Senator Doris Turner is encouraging all eligible people to apply to this year’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program or LIHEAP to help with utility costs.  Applications are going to be accepted from October 2nd, 2023 through August 15, 2024. Senator Doris Turner says “Energy bill assistance is vital as utility costs continue to rise.  No one should have to decide if they can heat their homes in the winter or put food on the table.” 


Energy bill assistance is offered through the Help Illinois Families Program in program year 2023.  This program will provide $237 million to eligible families to assist with natural gas, propane, and electricity bills.  This previous session provided help to 311,214 households. 


October 2nd, families can apply to this year’s program by visiting helpillinoisfamilies.com or by visiting their local agency.  Families can also call 1-833-711-0374.  All families who meet the qualifications and provide proper documentation will receive support until funding is gone.  Families who earn up to two times the federal poverty level are eligible to receive support through LIHEAP.
