Are there state or federal government energy assistance programs available?

Yes. The U.S. Department of Energy sponsors a weatherization assistance program to help eligible households permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. Application information is available on the Internet at www.eere.energy.gov/weatherization/apply.html

Additionally, the federal government sponsors the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Administered to consumers by state governments, this program can help qualified low-income households meet their energy needs.
