FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE WITH HEATING BILLS FOR
LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS
Cuba Township is pleased to administer two programs for low-income households to assist with the expense of heating bills.
LIHEAP (low income home energy assistance program) is funded locally and with federal grants to provide financial assistance to qualifying families and individuals. If approved, the grant will be applied directly to your NICOR and ComEd account.
SHARING is offered through the Salvation Army and operates in a similar manner to LIHEAP. Each program maintains different qualifying income levels.
Applications for both programs will begin September 1st for seniors and the disabled. Families with children under the age of 5 can apply beginning October 1st. And November 1st is the first application date for all other qualifying households. Please call the Township office at (847) 381-1924 to determine your eligibility or to make an appointment to complete an application for either program.
