About Accion Community Action Center - LIHEAP

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is coordinated through Miami-Dade County's Self Help Division as part of their emergency assistance programs. The program helps low-income individuals and families having financial difficulty paying their electric and gas utility bills. Eligible applicants will receive a credit payment which would be applied to their existing utility bill.

LIHEAP provides assistance in three categories, which include: Regular Energy Assistance designed to assist eligible participants with the ever increasing cost of their home energy expense.

The program provides a credit payment ranging from $150 - $300 dollars to be applied to their existing utility account. Regular Energy Assistance is restricted to once a year; eligible participants must continue to pay their utility bill awaiting the credit payment to apply to their account balance. Crisis Energy Assistance provides assistance to eligible households in resolving a home energy emergency/crisis.

Participants having received a final notice or disconnection of services are eligible to receive assistance in this category.

Eligible participants may receive a credit payment up to $600.00 to be applied to their existing utility account. Participants are permitted to apply twice annually during the winter and summer seasons for the Crisis Energy Assistance. Weather-Related Crisis aids eligible households to resolve a home energy emergency caused by a specific weather related disaster as declared by the Governor.
