Heat Bill Assistance
Get Help Paying your Heat Bill
HRDC administers Montana’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which provides financial assistance to eligible households to help pay their winter home heating costs, operating October through April. Eligibility is based on the household’s gross income and resources.
LIHEAP provides winter heating bill assistance, operating from October through April. Homeowners who qualify for LIEAP may also receive assistance with heat related emergencies such as furnace repairs.
Eligibility is based on the household’s income and resource limits, but everyone is encouraged to apply. Homeowner and renter households may apply during the winter months.
Applications are available at HRDC Offices or online here. Please only complete an application for LIHEAP beginning on October 1. LIHEAP operates through April 30.
LIHEAP payments are usually made directly to the heat source vendor. However, if the household heats with wood or has their heat included in their rent payment, the payment may be paid directly to the household.
