LIEAP helps pay a portion of the participants’ primary heating costs during the months of October through April. LIEAP assists approximately 3800 households annually in Flathead, Lake, Lincoln and Sanders Counties. Eligibility is based primarily on income and resources. Benefits are usually paid directly to a participants’ primary heating vendor and often qualifies the applicant for additional discounts offered by participating vendors. We also assist with repair; or in some cases replacement; of home heating systems that are unsafe or aren’t working properly. If you’re experiencing a problem with your main heat source, call the number above during open office hours or 406-261-6524 for emergency heating system problems outside of normal business hours.
