LIHEAP Deadline For New Jersey: August 31

This is a quick reminder that New Jersey energy consumers have until August 31 to submit an application under the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). New Jersey has a very late deadline because of a few factors: declining SNAP enrollment, fear among our immigrant families to apply for social benefits and perhaps a low selection rate of families receiving public assistance. To see if you qualify visit the NJ energy assistance programs income guidelines chart.

Since the deadline falls on a Saturday, the best option is to complete an application by mail and make sure it has an August 31, 2019 postmark on it. Go to the state website to download an application.
