Heating bill assistance available



Published: Mon, January 10, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



YOUNGSTOWN -- Mahoning County residents can apply for emergency and nonemergency home energy assistance programs, officials with the Mahoning-Youngstown Community Action Partnership said.

Appointments for the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) are required and can be scheduled by calling the toll-free number at (866) 223-1125 any time.

Emergency HEAP applicants must provide current gas and electric bills, as well as household income for the past three months for all people 18 and older in their homes during the face-to-face interview.

Disabled customers must show proof of their disability and Social Security cards for all household members older than 2.

Emergency HEAP provides a one-time payment of up to $175 per heating season when utility service is cut off, residents face the threat of termination or have less than a 10-day supply of bulk fuel.

Nonemergency HEAP provides a one-time payment of a portion of a heating bill. Total household income and size determines the amount of assistance.

Applications are available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays at the Mahoning Youngstown Community Action Partnership, 101 Federal Plaza East, Suite 200, in Youngstown.

For more information on the programs, contact the MYCAP office, (330) 747-7921.
