Community Action will begin process next week

By The Staff

The local Community Action office is assisting low-income families with heating bills with funding provided by LIHEAP or the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

Applicants are accepted in alphabetically by the first letter of their last name and will be taken Nov. 2-Dec. 11. Financial qualifications are based on the number of household occupants and the gross monthly income of all family members.

To qualify, the homeowner or renter must be responsible for home heating costs or pay heating costs as an undesignated portion of rent.

In addition to weekends, the office is closed Nov. 3, 6, 13, 25-27 and Dec. 4.

The LaRue County office is at 120 Greensburg St.

Applicants must bring a copy of the most recent heating bill or verification that heating expenses are paid as part of rent, Social Security numbers of permanent residence card numbers for each household member and proof of household income for the preceding month.
