The County of Mercer will accept applications for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) until Friday, July 31, 2020. The County will continue accepting applications for the Universal Service Fund (USF) Program throughout the year. Residents who pay their own heating costs, and meet the income guidelines, may be eligible to receive financial assistance with their winter heating bill. Residents with medical conditions may also be eligible to receive cooling assistance.

Please be advised that the Mercer County Office of Housing and Community Development remains closed to the public due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. This includes the LIHEAP and USF programs. 

The County will continue to receive applications up until the July 31 deadline by regular mail, fax, email or drop box for those who have not received assistance during this season which began on Oct. 1, 2019. This includes new applications, re-certifications, cooling and emergency oil requests. Emergency utility assistance (gas/electric) can also be requested by calling 211.
