Appointments Now Available for Assistance with Utility Bill Payments

Citrus County Housing Services has appointments available for the Low- Income Home Energy 
Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP assists low-income residents with their utility bill payments 
by assisting families with home heating and cooling costs.

LIHEAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Florida Department 
of Commerce and has been established to help qualifying low-income homeowners and renters pay for a 
portion of their utility costs.

LIHEAP is not designed to pay a household’s total energy costs, but to provide supplemental 
assistance.

The LIHEAP automated telephone system helps Citrus County residents schedule a home energy 
assistance appointment and hear more information regarding the program and the documents required 
for an appointment.

Due to the demand for assistance, applications for LIHEAP are accepted by appointment only. To 
schedule an appointment, call (424) 389-4290, Monday through Friday between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. 
Please note that the appointment line will not be open November 23 or 24 due to the Thanksgiving 
holiday.
