About liheap

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

provides individuals and

families with short-term fuel assistance.

Persons receiving LIHEAP

are connected to

family development resources,

which provides a link to long-term resources to help families

become self-reliant.


The program is designed to lower the energy burden for low-income households, who pay a high proportion of household income for home energy costs, by paying benefits for home energy bills.

LIHEAP Eligibility in Arkansas is based on both 60% of State Median Income and 150% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. Review the Eligibility Chart below to see if your household is income-eligible for benefits.
