The Community Action Partnership of Lake County announced the availability of heating assistance through the federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and Percentage of Income Payment Plan. Low-income residents may apply for grant assistance to help pay for energy bills.
LIHEAP/PIPP heating assistance will run through May 3, 2021, or until funds have been exhausted.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been determined there will not be a priority period for the heating assistance program.
This program year, the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines have been raised to serve families in higher income brackets.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all Community Action Partnership of Lake County offices and outreach sites will remain closed to person-to-person service. It will take applications for assistance via telephone, internet and the use of a drop box service. To apply for assistance, call the Community Action Partnership at 847-249-4330 to schedule an appointment.
