E-HEAP program begins

SIDNEY — The Community Action Organization has announced that the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (E-HEAP) began Nov. 1 and will run through March 31.

Income eligibility is 175 percent of the federal poverty guidelines ($42,525 per year for a family of four). E-HEAP provides financial assistance once per heating season to households that are threatened with disconnection, already disconnected, or have less than a 25 percent supply of bulk fuel, wood or coal. E-HEAP can also cover assistance to establish or transfer service.
