Michigan energy assistance
Michigan LIHEAP call (855) ASK-MICH 

Michigan’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program also assists low-income families with costs associated with utilities such as heating, cooling, gas and sewage. 

Types of Michigan LIHEAP: 

The Home Heating Credit is a Michigan tax credit that can assist low to moderate income families and individuals with the cost of heating their homes and winter heating bills. The amount of credit is determined based on total household income, the home’s heating costs, number of exemptions claimed and other factors. 

State Emergency Relief is a low income assistance program and it provides limited help to households and families with low income who have an emergency or crisis situation that threatens their health or safety. Services covered by this heating and utility bill assistance program include home heating, electric, gas and utility bills. Call your local community action agency to apply or learn how to get assistance. 

The Winter Protection Plan (WPP) protects both seniors and low-income customers of MPSC regulated natural gas and electric companies from shut-offs during the winter season. Eligible residents must be age 65 or older, receive Michigan Department of Health and Human Services cash assistance, receive Food Stamps or Medicaid and have a household income at or below 150% of the poverty level. The WPP allows eligible customers to make monthly payments of at least 7% of their estimated annual bill from November through March, and avoid shut-off during that time even if their bills are higher. 

Michigan’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is a federally-funded, low-income residential energy conservation program. The program provides free home energy conservation services to lower utility bills, thus creating more self-sufficient households. A trained inspector will assess eligible dwellings for energy conservation needs. A typical inspection will include testing for air leakage and safety and efficiency. Households that receive weatherization services can expect heating costs to be reduced 20-25%.
