PHILADELPHIA – City Councilman Brian O’Neill announces that as of November 1, 2016, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now open to Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) customers. 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.
If you would like an application or have any questions about the program, please call or visit one of Councilman O’Neill’s five full-time offices, including his new neighborhood office in Rhawnhurst at 7522 Castor Avenue (215-685-0438). This is in addition to his neighborhood offices in Fox Chase at 432 Rhawn Street (215-685-6431), FOP Lodge #5 Headquarters at 11630 Caroline Road (215-437-9167) and at Bustleton & Bowler above the 7th Police District (215-685-0432), as well as City Hall office (215-686-3422).
