LIHEAP Broadcast Message
DHS stops accepting Summer Cooling applications at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 24, 2018. Applications can be completed online at www.okdhslive.org until that time. Please be advised that Summer Cooling assistance is not an emergency program and payment might take up somewhere between 30-90 days for the utility provider to reflect LIHEAP credit on your utility bill. We strongly advise our clients to continue paying utility bills to avoid any service interruption. If you received a cut-off notice from your utility provider, you must contact their customer service to make necessary arrangements.
