By: Jacob Sexton — jacobs@977thebolt.com

Dakota City, IA — The 2019-2020 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) has been established to help qualifying low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs for the winter heating season.

Applications will be taken from November 1st to April 30th, 2020.

This program is not designed to pay household’s total energy costs.

The program will provide supplemental assistance based on several factors.

Those factors include total household income, household size, dwelling type, and type of heating fuel, among others.

If you have already applied and have been approved this winter season, you cannot re-apply.

For guidelines, and an appointment in Humboldt County call Upper Des Moines Outreach Office at 151-332-3631, located on the 3rd floor of the Humboldt County Courthouse.
