Fuel Assistance, also known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), is a government program that helps low- income families and individuals pay their heating bills during the winter.  Fuel assistance is for low-income tenants and homeowners, and eligibility is based on the household's gross annual income. Renters may also receive fuel assistance even if their heat is included in the rent.  
The amount of fuel assistance received depends on income, housing status, and heating costs. Recipients of State Fuel Assistance are also eligible for discounted rates on their electric and gas utility bills. Additionally, residents may be eligible for weatherization services, heating system repairs, and Citizens Energy heat assistance programs. Fuel assistance payments for actual usage or fuel delivery are made directly to the heating vendor for primary energy needs from November 1st to April 30th, except when cost of heating is included in the rent.
