Utility Bill Payment Assistance

Mississippi Department of Human Services - Utility Assistance

The Mississippi Department of Human Services manages programs to assist Mississippi consumers in payment of utility bills (in certain circumstances). 

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist families with energy costs. This important resource provides financial assistance to eligible households in managing cost associated with:

  • Home Energy bills
  • Energy Crisis
  • Weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs

Households may qualify for regular LIHEAP assistance and/or the Energy Crisis (emergency) Intervention Program (ECIP) for natural gas, wood, electricity, liquid propane/butane gas and other energy-related services.
