Citrus County Housing Services continues to assist low-income residents with their utility bill payments.

Through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low-income families with home heating and cooling costs.

LIHEAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, and has been established to help qualifying low-income homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs.

LIHEAP is not designed to pay a household’s total energy costs, but to provide supplemental assistance. Ordinarily, applications for LIHEAP are accepted by appointment only due to the demand for assistance.

For more information, please call 352-527-7520 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
