The application period for Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) has been extended to June 30, 2020 and the income guidelines have been increased from 150% to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. If you have already applied in FY20 (fall 2019 to 6/30/2020), the FY21 application period will open early this year on July 27th.
RMU also offers an energy assistance program offering up to $500 per year for households under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Applicants must first apply for LIHEAP and bring proof of application to RMU to apply. Residents may receive assistance from both the LIHEAP and RMU programs.
