The primary mission of the Department is to provide financial assistance to low-income households to avoid the interruption of utility services.
To achieve this mission, the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LiHEAP) verifies eligibility and assists families with children ages five years and under, the elderly, the disabled, and other low-income households at risk for loss of utility services as the result of financial burdens related to high fuel costs. Federal funding is provided through the Louisiana Housing Corporation (LHC). Additionally, the Human Services Department utilizes other local resources to identify and assist eligible Calcasieu Parish citizens.
