Help with Heating Costs

If you think you may have trouble paying for your fuel this season, please contact us so we can work out a solution.

You may also qualify for the federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which provides assistance with paying heating bills. Call the LIHEAP hotline at 866-857-7095 or visit and click the “Citizens” link.

Note: A proposal to cut federal funds this year did not materialize, so there are now enough funds available to help Pennsylvania residents with their heating costs this winter.
