OKLAHOMA CITY - — Online enrollment for winter heating assistance for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) begins today. The federally-funded program is administered by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS).

Applications can be completed online here.

Eligible households already receiving public assistance through OKDHS are preauthorized and do not need to apply. Preauthorized households have already been notified by U.S. Mail.

Households not preauthorized have been notified of the open enrollment by U.S. Mail and should apply online at www.OKDHSLive.org.

Households cannot receive assistance from both OKDHS and a tribe during the same federal fiscal year.

Only one payment per year per household is allowed for LIHEAP winter heating assistance. Household is defined as individuals living under the same roof with one utility meter.
