Online enrollment for winter heating assistance for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) begins Dec. 10, 2019. The federally-funded program is administered by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS).
Applications should be completed online at www.OKDHSLive.org.
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.
If any household member is Native American, application should be made online at www.OKDHSLive.org or with the member’s tribe. Households cannot receive assistance from both OKDHS and a tribe during the same federal fiscal year.
