It is that time of year that NKCAC is able to assist residents and their families with their heating bills. Please help us get the word out where none of our residents and families will be cold for the winter.
The 2019 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Crisis Component begins January 7, 2019 and ends March 29, 2019 or until all funds are expended, whichever comes first. The program is open to income eligible households who are responsible for their home heating costs. The Crisis Component of LIHEAP does require a disconnect notice OR a current bill with a past due amount for metered utilities; or for households to be within 4 days of running out of bulk fuel. For 2019, NKCAC will participate in a program that will allow a current bill with a past due amount on your metered utility bill to meet the crisis definition.
Households interested in applying for the program can call the auto- scheduler for an appointment at 859-439- 4004 or 502-991-8390 and follow the prompts OR schedule online at nkcac.cascheduler.com anytime at your convenience. The following is required when making an application:
