The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Block Grant is a federally funded block grant offered through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The LIHEAP Block Grant provides funds to individual states to assist low-income families with the high cost of home energy.  Since July 1, 2006, the block grant has been administered by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).  Throughout Indiana, this program is known as the Energy Assistance Program (EAP).

SIEOC is designated by federal regulation and under contract with the IHCDA as the local community action agency administering the Energy Assistance Program.  SIEOC takes applications, either in person or through a mail-in process, from all households requesting energy assistance.  We are responsible for eligibility determination and timely submission of payment transmittals to vendors.

SIEOC will treat all households equitably when determining eligibility.  We will serve low-income households subject to an energy burden and respond promptly to eligible households with a heating emergency.  The Energy Assistance Program can provide benefits to off-set the high costs of energy, but does not traditionally have the funds available to pay all of a household’s energy costs.

Please contact our main office for income guideline information.
