Utility Assistance/Weatherization Disbursement
If your household is directly responsible for heating or cooling costs, you may apply for the LIHEAP Utility Assistance, Air-Conditioner/Heater, Fan/Blanket & Energy Kit Program. 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 and 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 LIHEAP caseworker may determine the applicant’s eligibility. If this information is not provided, the 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 LIHEAP Caseworker CANNOT process an application without all required documents.
