This is the time of year I try to make a contribution to Keep Wisconsin Warm, a local program that provides financial help for heating bills. I wondered what programs other states offered — it turns out the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a heating assistance web page for every state in the country. This LIHEAP (Low Income Heat and Energy Assistance Program) database includes many heating assistance programs — both public and private — in your area. Want to give? They’ll tell you how. Need heating assistance, or know someone who does? Applications and info here, too.
Today’s Mitzvah: Check out LIHEAP in your state.
