Appointments Now Available for Assistance with Utility Bill Payments

These programs assist low-income residents with their utility bill payments by assisting families with
home heating, cooling, and water/wastewater costs.

The automated telephone system helps Citrus County residents schedule an appointment and hear more information regarding the programs and the documents required for an appointment. Appointments are scheduled up to two weeks in advance.

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

These programs are not designed to pay a household’s total utility costs, but to provide supplemental
assistance. Due to demand for assistance, applications for these programs are accepted by appointment
For more information, please call 352-527-7520 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday
through Friday.
