Send a link to a friend

[July 01, 2008]  Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois has announced that the summer utility assistance program will begin on July 7. Funds are limited and will be available in the form of a one-time lump-sum payment of $150 per eligible family.

ChiropracticTo be eligible, household income must be equal to or less than 150 percent of the poverty level. Due to limited funds available, there are strict guidelines and requirements for eligibility. Priority will be given to households that contain a member who is 60 or older, a child or children under 36 months of age, an individual who receives Social Security disability benefits or has pending documentation filed with the Social Security Administration, and households that contain a member with an applicable medical condition. A doctor's certification is required stating what the condition is and that it would be aggravated by extreme heat.


"Funds are very limited this year, the program is first-come, first-serve, and when funds are exhausted there will be no more funds available," said Kim Lucas, LIHEAP assistant coordinator.

Eligible households should contact their local Community Action office beginning Monday to set up an appointment for application. Appointments will not be made until Monday.
