About Community Concepts - Lewiston Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

The Energy Aid for Low-Income Home program provides money to help low-income landlords and tenants pay for heating costs.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
