About Naranja Service Center
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.
This Service Center will ONLY be distributing and processing Regular Energy applications.
