The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) can provide utility bill help to customers in Tennessee facing a crisis situation, or the fund can also help with paying regular monthly energy bills. Piedmont Natural Gas works directly with the congressional delegations across Tennessee to ensure that this resource is available every year to qualified customers. Cash assistance and grants from LIHEAP are usually targeted at low income customers who are seniors, families with children, and the disabled. The funds will help low-income households, with special attention to households that spend a high percentage of their total income on home electric bills.

The crisis component of LIHEAP can help Tennessee families pay their Piedmont Natural Gas bills if they are faced with a disconnection of their utilities. This component can also help those people who are either low on or who have run out of fuel for their homes. So they may have run out of oil, kerosene, wood, or whatever else they use to heat or cool their homes with. Funding is limited, so call your local community action agency to apply for LIHEAP as soon as possible.
