Kendall-Grundy Community Action Services, a division of the Kendall County Health Department, has funds available for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The mission for energy assistance programs is to help low-income households meet their immediate home energy needs by paying a portion of winter energy bills to prevent service interruptions, while providing education on home energy conservation and other opportunities to achieve and maintain energy security and financial self-stability.
To qualify for this assistance on gas and electric bills, households must have an income equal to or less than 150% of the poverty level as defined in the 2020 poverty guidelines and provide required documentation during a scheduled appointment.
LIHEAP applications are taken based on a first-come, first-served basis until May 31 or until funding is exhausted. For information, call the Kendall County Health Department, 811 W.
