Home Heating Assistance Available

The Kno-Ho-Co-Ashland Community Action Commission's Emergency HEAP Winter Crisis program is underway until March 31, 2019.  Emergency HEAP (WCP) is a federally funded program administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency, Office of Community Assistance that provides financial assistance to low-income households that are threatened with disconnection from their heating source, or have already had service disconnected. Those households serviced by a PUCO-regulated utility are encouraged to sign up for the Percentage of Income Payment Plus Plan (PIPP Plus) or an alternate budget payment plan in order to receive energy assistance.  Households utilizing bulk fuel must have a tank containing less than 25% of its capacity. 

Income documentation for all household members along with social security numbers, electric and gas bills, U.S. citizenship verification, proof of disability if disabled, and other documentation must be presented at the appointment.  Income guidelines are based at 175% of the Federal Poverty Level and are as follows: Household size of one may earn up to $21,245, household of two $28,805, household of three $36,365, household of four $43,925, household of five $51,485 and household of six $59,045. Income may also be calculated using the past 30 days.
