CARES Act LIHEAP Application

The Navajo Nation received a one-time, non-recurring, funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Recovery (CARES) Act, P.L. 116-136, which provides additional Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding to help “prevent, prepare for, or respond to” home energy needs surrounding the national public health pandemic created by the Coronavirus Disease of 2019 (COVID-19).

The Navajo Family Assistance Services (NFAS) office within the Navajo Division of Social Services currently administers the standard LIHEAP.  Therefore, NFAS will administer and implement the CARES Act Supplemental LIHEAP Funding.
