Citrus County Housing Services has opened the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Automated Appointment System.

Appointments Now Available for Assistance with Utility Bill Payments

The new phone number is (424) 389-4290. Citrus County LIHEAP assists low-income residents with their utility bill payments by assisting families with home heating and cooling costs. 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.  Appointments are scheduled up to two weeks in advance.

LIHEAP is 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.

LIHEAP is not designed to pay a household’s total energy costs, but to provide supplemental assistance. Ordinarily, applications for LIHEAP are accepted by appointment only due to the demand for assistance.

For more information, please call 352-527-7520 between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday.
