Heating assistance available from LKLP

LKLP Community Action Council Inc. began the “crisis” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that assists households in a heating crisis on January 4.

Households must meet basic LIHEAP eligibility criteria and be within four days of running out of coal, fuel oil, propane, kerosene, or wood; have received a past due/disconnect notice of natural gas or electric; or, if heating is included as a portion of the rent, have received an eviction notice for non-payment of rent from the landlord.

Applications are being taken at Community Action Partnership locations, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For scheduling information, contact the Letcher County LKLP at 2 Main Street in Whitesburg, (606) 633-4458.
