DHHS LIHEAP: http://www.liheap.ncat.org/profiles/California.htm

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally-funded program that helps low-income households pay their home heating and cooling bills. It operates in every state and the District of Columbia, as well as on most tribal reservations and U.S. territories. The LIHEAP Clearinghouse is an information resource for state, tribal and local LIHEAP providers, and others interested in low-income energy issues. This site is a supplement to the LIHEAP-related information the LIHEAP Clearinghouse currently provides through its phone line

YOUTH


California Youth Empowerment Network (CAYEN)

CAYEN represents a TAY Steering Committee from across the state of California. These are youth and young adults ages 16-25 who have been touched by the mental health, juvenile justice, or foster care systems. These three groups of young people have many cross-cutting issues, so while CAYEN focuses on mental health policy we work with our partners to bridge the gaps between the three systems.
