Thank you for visiting the Louisville Metro Office of Resilience and Community Services to schedule an appointment for the 2022 Spring Subsidy phase of LIHEAP (the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) which provides cooling assistance. This federally-funded program is designed to help offset the cost of higher electric bills due to rising temperatures.
Residents wishing to apply must schedule an appointment utilizing this automated appointment system.
Applicants must be Jefferson County residents with a household income at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For the Subsidy Component of LIHEAP, residents can apply regardless of the status of their electric bill.
Applicants will be required to drop off all required documentations in a secured drop box at the LIHEAP office selected using this appointment system.
LIHEAP Spring Subsidy will operate through June 2022, or until funding is depleted, whichever comes first.
Prior to your appointment, drop off your application and documentation in a drop box at the LIHEAP site you select. You WILL NOT NEED to wait at the site. A LIHEAP staff member will contact you by phone to let you know the status of your application. If you are unable to drop off your documentation on the day of your appointment, you will have to reschedule your appointment.
Gather the required documentation - which is listed in more detail in this recording ? and place it in an envelope in the drop box. Copies of the required documentation is preferred.
To continue, you will need paper and pen, your LG&E number if you are an LG&E customer, the last four numbers of your social security number, and date of birth ready to schedule an appointment.
Eligibility for all programs is subject to program calendars, fund availability, appointment availability, verifiable household income and family size. Clients are served on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note after reviewing your documents we may request additional information to complete your application.
