Fuel Assistance (Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, HEAP or LiHEAP), provides heating assistance to income eligible households in Cumberland County to pay for a portion of their annual heating expenses. The assistance is not intended to pay for all annual heating expenses. The program provides a one-time per season direct payment to heat vendors for homes heated with oil, kerosene, coal, pellets, wood, LP gas or electricity. In some instances when the household's heat is included in the monthly rent, your payment may go to your power bill or if all utilities are included in your rent, it may be sent to the eligible head of household.
