Currituck County Department of Social Services is currently accepting applications for the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP). The LIEAP program helps eligible families with their primary heating expense by providing a one-time annual payment directly to their heating vendor, such as a power, gas or fuel oil company.
Social Services began taking LIEAP applications on December 1, 2017 for households containing a member age 60 and older OR containing a disabled person (receiving SSI, SSA Disability or VA Disability payments) who is also receiving a service through the Department of Aging and Adult Services.
Applications for all other households will be taken from January 2, 2018 through March 30, 2018 unless funds have been exhausted.
Applicants are not required to bring anything with them to apply, however the following items will expedite the application process:
- The account number (or bill) for their heating vendor.
- Proof of all income for everyone living in the home.
- Social security numbers, if available.
For more information or questions, contact the Currituck County Department of Social Services at 252-232-3083.
