Arkansas residents who need help paying their winter utility bills can apply now for up to $475 in assistance through the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The program's application period runs Jan. 8 through March 22, or until funds run out.

An online application is available at getliheap.com, but applications can also be made in-person at local community-based organizations.

The Arkansas Department of Energy & Environment manages the LIHEAP program for electricity, natural gas and water, but applications for assistance must be made through a community-based organization. Customers can find their local agency online at adeq.state.ar.us along with a complete list of eligibility and required documentation to complete the application.

Eligibility is determined by household size and income. Required documentation includes digital copies of a photo ID for the utility account holder, social security cards for all household members, proof of income, proof of residency and copies of the most recent utility bills.

Once approved for LIHEAP funding, agencies make a pledge on a customer's account for reconnection or to prevent disconnection.
