The Low Income Energy Assistance Program(LIEAP) is a Federally-funded program that provides for a one-time cash payment to help eligible families pay their heating bills. This payment is usually received in February of each year.

A household that applies must:

  • Have at least one U.S. citizen or non-citizen who meets the eligibility criteria.
  • Meet an income test.
  • Have reserves at or below $2,200.
  • Be responsible for its heating bills.

Energy Assistance is important to all that receive it, but more so if someone in your home is elderly, disabled or a young child under 6 years old. These persons are especially at risk for life threatening illness of death if their home is too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer.

In addition to the LIEAP program we also offer assistance through our Crisis Intervention Program. For more information on the Crisis Intervention Program please visit our Crisis Intervention Program page.

Project SHARE is a program of The Salvation Army Georgia Division, largely funded through the monthly donations of Georgia’s utility customers.

SHARE provides emergency bill-payment assistance to individuals and families facing a temporary crisis that threatens their home. SHARE attempts to target the most urgent need, whether it is a utility bill, a part of a rent payment or an emergency prescription.

To apply for aid, make an appointment at the SHARE Partner Agency in your county of residence. Each eligibility decision is based on the change in circumstances that caused the crisis, as determined by a local case manager. The level of assistance is based on need, available funds and what it will take to resolve the crisis.

As a Salvation Army program, gifts to Project SHARE are tax-deductible.
