The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides financial assistance to eligible low-income households to offset the costs of heating and/or cooling residential dwellings, assistance for weather-related or energy-related emergencies, and weatherization services to improve the energy efficiency of low-income residential dwellings and safeguard the health and safety of household occupants. This program may include a leveraging incentive program in which supplementary LIHEAP funds can be obtained by LIHEAP grantees if non-federal leveraged home energy resources are used along with LIHEAP weatherization related services.
The Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program provides weatherization to improve the energy efficiency of low-income residential dwellings and safeguard the health and safety of household occupants.
The Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program provides services to fully abate or control lead paint hazards in low-income privately owned housing with young children.
The Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP) provides weatherization and renewable energy services in low-income single-family and multi-family dwellings, within disadvantaged communities to help reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. LIWP will include projects such as weatherization, solar water heater and solar photovoltaic systems installations.
