(UNDATED) - The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) has announced dates for the 2016-17 Winter Assistance Program through the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The program begins November 1, 2016 and concludes March 12, 2017.

Beginning November 1st, applications will be accepted by community-based organizations under contract with IHCDA. These 22 community organizations referred to as "Local Service Providers" (LSPs) cover all 92 Indiana counties. Individuals seeking assistance can apply in person, through a mail-in process or through another subcontractor at the location that services their county.

The LIHEAP Block Grant is a non-competitive, federally funded block grant offered through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). LIHEAP provides financial assistance to low-income households to maintain their home utility services.

Since July 1, 2006, the block grant has been administered by IHCDA. During the 2015-16 Winter Assistance period that ended on May 13, a total of 103,200 households were served and received an average benefit of $300.

IHCDA, chaired by Lt. Governor Holcomb, provides housing opportunities, promotes self-sufficiency and strengthens communities in order to build an Indiana with a sustainable quality of life for all Hoosiers in the community of their choice. For more information, visit or
