Rep. Causer--LIHEAP Program Open In PA

Pennsylvania's LIHEAP Program Now Open, Causer Says

HARRISBURG - Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced today that Pennsylvania's Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now accepting applications for cash grants. Crisis grants will be available on Jan. 3, 2011.

LIHEAP helps low-income people pay their heating bills through home energy assistance grants and crisis grants. Cash grants are awarded based on household income, family size, type of heating fuel and region. Crisis grants are provided in the event of a heating emergency, including broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced, lack of fuel, termination of utility service or danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated. In most counties, assistance with home heating crisis situations is available 24 hours a day.

Applications are available at local county assistance offices, or from local utility companies and community service agencies, such as Area Agencies on Aging. Residents can also apply online through the COMPASS system.

Income eligibility for cash grants begins at $35,280 for a family of four. For full income eligibility guidelines and other information, call the appropriate county assistance office:

· Cameron County -- 814-486-1206.

· 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.
