The Coastal GA Area Community Action Authority will assist eligible households with heating assistance.
Georgia’s Heating Assistance program will start Thursday for homebound, disabled and elderly households, 65 years old or older. Also households with individuals who have life-threatening medical conditions and have been disconnected or are in danger of being disconnected may apply.
All other eligible families may apply starting Dec. 1.
Payments will be made directly to the home energy supplier.
To participate in the program, the family must meet an income equal to or less than 150 percent of the poverty guidelines as follows: for a one-person household $15,315; for two persons $20,535; for three persons $25,755; for four persons $30,975; for five persons $36,195; for six persons $41,415; for seven persons $46,635; for eight persons $51,855 and for each additional person add $5,220 annual income.
Applicants must bring their most recent fuel bill or statement of service from their cooling provider. They must also have proof of income for all household members for the last 30 days. This may be a check stub or an award letter granting public assistance, social security, VA or unemployment compensation. Applicants must also bring social security numbers and proof of age for all household members.
Anyone wising to apply for benefits in Liberty County should call 1-866-423-8081 for an appointment. Households will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis. The program will close when funds are exhausted.
