LOW-INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

PACS is currently providing applications for those in need of assistance for paying their heating bills through a federal program called the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

The LIHEAP program is for individuals who are in a crisis situation with their heat, whether itís coal, wood, propane or kerosene. If itís propane or kerosene or wood, the home must be within four days of running out. If itís natural gas or electric, the address must have received a disconnect notice.

To apply for assistance, an individual must bring the disconnect notice, if applicable, proof of their previous monthís income for anyone in the home receiving an income (no bank statements) or most recent award letter for Social Security, pension or similar income. If there was no income, a verification form must be filled out and signed by someone who is not related to them and does not live in the home.

A Social Security card for each person living in the home is also required.

PACS will be taking applications from 7:30 a.m. through about 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. PACS will continue to take applications when its office is open, until the funding runs out.
