From Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission's Website: https://www.nkcac.org/services/financial-assistance/
The cost of heating the home during the winter can be a burden for many households. That’s why Northern Kentucky CAC’s network of neighborhood centers provides a variety of programs to help families and individuals manage their heating bills. Staff can provide tips and ideas for lowering energy use and also take applications for Weatherization services.
The 2019 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Subsidy Component begins November 4 and runs through December 13, 2019. Applicants who are elderly (age 60 and over) or disabled and receive a fixed income can pre-register beginning October 15, 2019. The program is open to income eligible households who are responsible for their home heating costs and provides a credit or payment to a household’s primary heating source. The program is available based on the household’s total income and no disconnection notice or past-due bill is needed.
Please contact a Neighborhood Center in your county to find out how to apply for LIHEAP as well as what other services your household may be eligible for.
Please schedule a meeting with one of our staff members to get this process started on the Northern Kentucky CAC Auto Scheduler or by calling 859-439-4004.
