Massachusetts was awarded a total of $130,453,598.00 by the federal government to provide energy assistance to low-income families ahead of the winter season. This includes: 
▪ $126,677,861.00 from the regular LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) block grant funding 
▪ $3,775,737.00 in additional funding appropriated for FY2024
LIHEAP helps low-income households pay home heating and cooling bills, prevent energy shutoffs, restore services, make minor energy-related home repairs, and weatherize homes to make them more energy efficient.
A new LIHEAP eligibility tool allows households across the country to quickly identify if they might be eligible for LIHEAP assistance by inputting basic information like income and household size. The LIHEAP eligibility tool is available in English, Spanish, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese. 
The eligibility tool can be accessed here:
