[October 03, 2013]  The Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois has announced that the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP, is now open to homes children under the age of 6. 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 this program, individuals must have incomes of no more than 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

Community Action Partnership administers the program, which provides a one-time benefit toward utilities to eligible households in DeWitt, Logan, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties.

Interested participants can contact their local Community Action office to schedule an appointment:

  • Logan County: 217-732-2159, ext. 226

  • Menard County: 217-632-3137

  • Mason County: 309-543-6988

  • DeWitt County: 217-935-2455

  • 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. The program will continue until May 31, 2014, or until all LIHEAP funds are depleted.
