If you are worried about paying to heat your home this winter, you may qualify for help! The North Carolina Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) offers a one-time vendor payment to help eligible families pay their heating expense. To be eligible for LIEAP, one person in the home must be age 60 or older and fall below a certain income limits. You may schedule an appointment with Council on Aging to fill out a LIEAP application starting December 1st. To see if you qualify, call 704-292-1797.
