[October 02, 2012]
The Community Action Partnership
of Central Illinois announced that beginning Oct. 1, the Low Income
Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP, is open to homes
with children under age 5. This is an expansion of the current
priority enrollment period that includes seniors, residents with
disabilities and households that are disconnected from their primary
or secondary energy source.
To qualify for the 2013 LIHEAP program, individuals must have
incomes of no more than 150 percent of the federal poverty level.
Community Action Partnership administers the LIHEAP program that
provides a one-time benefit toward utilities for eligible households
in DeWitt, Logan, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties.
Interested participants can contact
their local Community Action office to schedule an appointment:
217-732-2159, ext. 226
Piatt County: 217-762-2421
All other households that meet the 150 percent federal poverty
guidelines will be eligible for the program beginning Nov. 1 and
continuing to May 31, 2013, or until all LIHEAP funds are depleted.
