> Arizona Utility Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
Utility assistance programs available from the Federal and state governments and from utility companies are coordinated to help low-income households meet their energy needs. The Community Services Administration (CSA) subcontracts with community agencies to administer the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Utility Repair, Replacement and Deposit Program (URRD). Through these programs services provided are utility deposits and payments. Weatherization of homes is conducted and certain appliances can be repaired or replaced. There are also wide arrays of utility discount programs, which are coordinated with these services.
