    In cooperation with the Illinois Department of Commerce and
    Economic Opportunity, LIHEAP offers help with heating bills for qualifying low-income
    households.
    Anyone who has not received assistance from Tazwood since Sept. 1, 2012, is eligible to
    receive a one-time payment toward utility bills.
    A household may qualify if its gross income for the 30 days preceding application does
    not exceed $1,396 for a one person household; $1,891 for a two person household;
    $2,386 for a three person household; or $2,881 for a four person household.
