> Nevada Energy Assistance Program (EAP)
The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) assists low-income Nevadans with the high cost of home energy. Funding is provided from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) block grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and from Universal Energy Charge (UEC) monies distributed through the Nevada Fund for Energy Assistance and Conservation. There are two emergency assistance programs provided by the Energy Assistance Program (EAP); Crisis Intervention and Fast-Track. Both are available year round. A household determined eligible under either emergency program would receive a benefit based on their gross income and annual energy usage.
