Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
LIHEAP is a federally funded program that provides grants to states to assist qualified individuals with their home heating and cooling costs.
In addition to assistance with energy bills, some funds are available to make improvements to homes and apartments to make them more energy efficient and reduce heating bills.
To make an appointment with an enrollment specialist, call the Council on Aging of Buncombe County at (828) 277-8288. Walk-ins are also welcome at all of the Benefits Enrollment Center’s locations.
