NEW HANOVER CTY - New Hanover County will begin taking applications on Monday, December 2 for the state’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) for qualified households.

Division of Aging and Adult Services are eligible to apply for assistance beginning December 2. All other households may apply from January 2 through March 31, 2020, or until funds are exhausted.
“The Low Income Energy Assistance Program helps residents stay safe and warm through the winter months, and last year our team helped 2,394 New Hanover County households with their utility bills through this program,” said New Hanover County Assistant Director of Social Services Tonya Jackson. “Anyone who is having difficulty paying their bill is encouraged to come in and apply.”
New Hanover County Department of Social Services administers the program locally, and applications must be done in person at the Health and Human Services building, located at 1650 Greenfield Street. Those eligible to apply in December can also apply at the locations and times listed below:
