COMMUNITY ACTION TO BEGIN WINTER CRISIS PROGRAM

Program will run until March 29, 2019

The Winter Crisis Program (WCP) at Hocking Athens Perry Community Action will begin November 1, 2018. This program is designed to help families/households who are facing an emergency situation to maintain and/or restore electric/gas service and/or provide a bulk fuel (propane, wood, coal, fuel oil, kerosene).  An emergency situation is defined as having a disconnect notice on your electric or natural gas, or having less than a 25% (tank) supply of bulk fuel such as propane, fuel oil, coal, or kerosene, or less than a 10-day supply of firewood. This assistance is available only once per heating season (November through March).

To qualify, you must be income eligible and be in an emergency situation. Households with a total gross income at or below 175% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines may be eligible.
