LIHEAP Application Instructions

To apply for New Hampshire FAP, you need to contact your local Community Action Agency (CAA). You can find contact information for local offices of CAA in your area using this link.

If you can’t go to CAA office because you’re homebound, you can call your local office and ask for an interview arrangement at your home. In all cases, you will have to be interviewed by your CAA office in order to determine your eligibility and amount of benefits.

When applying for Fuel Assistance Program (FAP), you automatically apply for Weatherization Assistance as well. Both programs use the same application and eligibility determination process. However, this doesn’t mean that qualifying for one program necessarily means you qualify for the other as well.
