In response to Governor Pritzker’s directives and guidance from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Western Egyptian is not currently accepting face-to-face interactions with customers. Applications are still being accepted and may be submitted via fax, email, mail or at one of our three drop boxes. Our staff will continue to be in the office Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm to answer phones, process applications and provide services.


The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now available to residents of Jackson, Monroe, Perry and Randolph Counties. Eligibility is based on income guidelines. You do not need to be behind on your current energy bill. To apply, you may call your local outreach office to be placed on the call back list, or you may pick up an application from the outdoor literature boxes at any outreach office, or you may print the application from this website.

Furnace Assistance

Did you know that a LIHEAP companion program may be able to repair or replace a non-working furnace for a low income home owner? Contact our office for more information.
