PHILADELPHIA – City Councilman Brian O’Neill (10th District) announces that as of November, the 2017 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program is now open to PGW customers. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federal grant that helps income-eligible families pay their heating bills and restore gas service in the event of a shutoff. These grants range from $200 to $1,000, are available to both renters and homeowners, and do not have to be repaid. The award amount is based on household size and income.
