2019-2020 Energy Assistance Available

The 2019-2020 Low-Income Home Energy assistance Program has been established to help low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs for the winter heating season.

Applications will be taken October 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020 for elderly (60 and over) and/or disabled households. All other households can apply November 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020.

This program is not designed to pay household's total energy costs. The program will provide supplemental assistance based on several factors. Those factors include total household income, household size, dwelling type, and type of heating fuel, among others.

If you have already applied and have been approved this winter season, you cannot re-apply. 

For guidelines and an appointment in Osceola County, call Upper Des Moines Outreach Office on 712-754-2573. The office is located at 1672 Northwest Blvd in Sibley.
