Sault Tribe Anishnaabek Community and Family Services (ACFS) 2016-17 Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) opens on Nov. 1, 2016. LIHEAP provides assistance to lower the burden of high energy bills and to increase energy efficiency of eligible Sault Tribe households in the tribe’s seven-county service area. Members who received heating assistance during the program year from the Department of Human Services will not be eligible for benefits.
LIHEAP is designed to assist low-income tribal households to meet their home heating energy burden.
LIHEAP-Heating Assistance is available this year from Nov. 1, 2016, through Sept. 20, 2017, as permitted by available funding on a first come, first served basis. Heating Assistance offers financial assistance to tribal members who are in need of energy fuels. Disconnect notices are not required.
Applications approved for funding will be provided with credits on their accounts with their energy providers.
