The Oklahoma Department of Human Services closed its application period for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

The application period began July 9, and within a week DHS had processed more than 74,000 requests. The federally-funded LIHEAP appropriated $16 million for its summer cooling program, and those funds were depleted in seven days.

The DHS will once again offer assistance next winter to help low-income Oklahomans pay their heating bills.
