LIHEAP Program Extended, Says Causer



LIHEAP Program Extended

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now open until April 2, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced today.

The LIHEAP program is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW) and helps income-eligible households pay for heat during the winter months.

The original closing date of the LIHEAP program was March 15, but circumstances have allowed the program to continue until April 2. The cash grant amounts have also increased by $100.

DPW anticipates helping approximately 600,000 families with cash grants during the 2009-10 program year.

To apply for LIHEAP, call or visit the local county assistance office to set up an appointment. Residents should be sure to apply in their home counties and are reminded they need the following to obtain assistance:

· Names of people in the household.

· Dates of birth for people in household.

· Social Security numbers for all household members.

· Proof of income for members of household.

· A copy of a recent heating bill.

For more information, contact the appropriate county assistance office:

· Cameron County -- 814-486-3757.

· McKean County -- 814-362-4671.

· Potter County -- 814-274-4900.

Assistance is also available by calling the toll-free LIHEAP hotline at 1-866-857-7095 (individuals with hearing impairments may call the TDD number at 1-800-451-5886). Internet users can access additional information at Causer's Web site at RepCauser.com.
