The Community Action Organization can assist those struggling with winter heating bills.
The Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (E-HEAP) is running now through March 31, 2016. Income eligibility is 175 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($42,437.50 per year for a family of four). E-HEAP provides financial assistance once per heating season to households threatened with disconnection, already disconnected, or have less than 25 percent supply of bulk fuel, wood or coal. E-HEAP can also cover assistance to establish or transfer service.
Documents required for assistance include:
All Social Security numbers for every household member
All pages of the current electric and gas bill or information on your bulk fuel
Birth dates of every household member
Proof of all income received within the last 13 weeks for all household members
If renting, lease agreement or rent receipt with landlord’s name, address and phone number
Job and Family Services Case number
If disabled, proof of disability
