Qualifying customers have another month to apply for help with energy bills.

Pennsylvania's Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) assists income-eligible utility customers in paying their utility bills.

LIHEAP offers assistance in the form of a cash grant, sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat.

The deadline to apply for the help is April 26.

State officials said prudent planning and running an efficient program allowed them to extend the deadline by nearly a month. The original application deadline was March 29.

To apply, visit the LIHEAP website.
