help with home utility costs

Attention: LIHWAP is a federally funded program that is only funded through March 31, 2024.  If you need help with your water or sewer bill, you will need to apply before December 31, 2023.  DSS will not be able to accept any application submitted after Sunday, December 31 at 11:59pm.

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) may be able to help eligible Missourians pay their energy, water, or sewer bill. LIHEAP also provides emergency services to those in crisis.
