To Complete Your LIHEAP Application

March 18, 2020

In order to complete your LIHEAP application, the following steps must be completed.

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic affecting our nation, MCCA is unable to meet with customers face-to-face at this time to provide utility assistance through the LIHEAP program.  All required documents must be submitted in order to complete your application.  The LIHEAP program will continue taking LIHEAP applications until funds or exhausted or no later than June 30, 2021.

 

All applications take up to 60 days to process once entered.  The LIHEAP Program can never guarantee to stop or beat a threat for disconnection.

 

Please note, due to the amount of applications being received, we are roughly 6 weeks behind on entry.  With that being said, an intake worker may need to contact you once your application is entered in the system to request updated income documentation.  Accurate income must be reported, as our systems are linked with the State Income Verification system and if income is found after your application is entered, that was not reported, will cause your application to be immediately denied.
