Income guidelines for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) have been announced. Applications for the program will be accepted on a first come/first served basis at the New Opportunities Greene County Family Development Center on N. Elm in Jefferson beginning Oct. 2 for households with an elderly/disabled member, or beginning Nov. 1 for others.
Applicants will need to show their Social Security cards or I94 card, a copy of their most recent heating and electric bill, and proof of all household membersâ€™ gross income for the past three months or for the past year.
LIHEAP is not designed to pay a householdâ€™s total energy cost, but to provide supplemental assistance based on several factors. Those factors include total household income, household size, dwelling type, and type of heating fuel, among others.
