The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

No household should be without heat


As wonderful as Idaho is, there’s no denying how harsh the winters can be. Even with all utilities available, they can still be an ordeal to deal with. For families that could potentially endure an Idaho winter without heat, the situation is near unbearable. WICAP, along with our partners across Idaho, are ready to help through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

This program focuses not only on utility bill assistance, but any form of heating. If you are past due on a utility bill, or have 48 hours or less of bulk fuel for your home (wood, propane, gas, etc.), please view our requirements and contact us at (888) 900-7361


Western Idaho Community Action Partnership has resources to help in the event of an emergency or crisis.


These include:


  • Utility Shut-Off Prevention

  • Emergency Food Assistance

  • Supportive Case Management

  • Clothing

  • Resources and Referrals to Partner Organizations

  • Please Call 1-888-900-7361 for services in your area.
