Utility Assistance

Resources to assist seniors with their energy costs.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

This program assists low-income households by offsetting the rising cost of home energy through direct financial assistance, energy counseling, outreach and education. An overdue bill or disconnect notice is not required to receive LIHEAP assistance. Emergency assistance is available to eligible households whose utility service has been disconnected and for homeowners whose furnace isn't working or has been determined to be unsafe to operate. For more information about the program, including eligibility requirements, please visit the DuPage County LIHEAP webpage or the Will County LIHEAP webpage. Applications for LIHEAP are taken at Township offices. Phone numbers for assistance are provided below:
