FPL | Low Income Assistance - Save Energy at Home

Funding from the Federal Government

Florida annually receives funding from the federal government to help people with a low income pay their utility bills. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides this funding.

  • LIHEAP funds are distributed through community-based agencies working throughout Florida.
  • FPL works closely with state and local agencies and organizations in the administration of LIHEAP and other such funds, as part of our ASSIST Program.
  • To be eligible to receive help, your household's income may not exceed 150 percent of the poverty guidelines.
  • You may still be eligible if your household's income is greater than this amount because some types of income are not counted.

How to Apply

Here's how you can apply for funds:

  • Please visit the State of Florida's Department of Community Affairs web site.
  • Click on the link for the Community Assistance Local Programs and Contacts List.
  • Locate your county on the list. The contact agency providing assistance in paying utility bills is listed under "LIHEAP."

Individuals interested in applying for LIHEAP assistance should contact their local/state LIHEAP agency. When applying for assistance, you must provide proof that you are responsible for the energy costs for the household. Other requirements are explained here.
