LIHEAP otherwise known as the Energy Assistance Program has run out of funds.
The Energy Assistance Program helps low-income residents pay for winter utility bills, but with the funding gone, those who rely on this extra boost worry about the next few months.
LIHEAP says they will continue to take applications. They anticipate receiving additional funds from the state of Illinois.
