Heating assistance available

The LKLP Community Action Council is operating the Crisis portion of the Low- Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that assists households in a heating crisis. The cold winter weather combined with rising utility costs leaves many households unable to meet heating bills or purchase suffi cient bulk fuel. A household is in a heating crisis situation when it meets the basic LIHEAP eligibility criteria and is within four days of running out of bulk fuel; has received a past due or disconnect notice if natural gas or electricity is the heat source; or the heating costs are included in rent and the household has received an eviction notice.

Applications for assistance are available at the LKLP Letcher County at 2 Main St., Whitesburg, (606) 633-4458, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
