Every winter Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides grants to assist with home heating costs. LIHEAP grants can be applied to either a PECO or PGW account. In some cases, you may be eligible for a LIHEAP grant even if you are not a customer of PECO or PGW. You may also be able to use LIHEAP to repair your broken heating system. Please review the resources below for more information about LIHEAP.
