Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
Low Income Household Water Assistance Program
If your household is directly responsible for water, heating or cooling costs, you may apply for the LIHWAP/LIHEAP Utility Assistance. A surplus of funds from the cooling and heating season was used to buy individual AC window units and portable heater units. These AC window or portable heater units are being disbursed to several communities across the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes’ Service Area. This is a one-time disbursement, and future disbursements are not guaranteed.
In order to qualify for the LIHEAP program, at least one (1) household member must be a member of a federally recognized American Indian or Alaska Native tribe. Also, households must show a financial need based on federal income guidelines. Additionally, all households must provide complete financial information so that the LIHWAP/LIHEAP caseworker may determine the applicant’s eligibility. If this information is not provided, the LIHWAP/LIHEAP caseworker will not process the application, and the applicant will not receive any assistance.
Below is a checklist of the required documents that are needed to process an application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to provide all necessary documents. In order to expedite your application process, please provide all necessary documents when turning in an application. The LIHWAP/LIHEAP Caseworker CANNOT process an application without all required documents.
