Funding Available for Seniors in an Energy Crisis

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY AUG 24, 2019

The hottest months of the year are almost behind us, but the electric bills that follow can be devastating for seniors with limited incomes.  Fortunately, older adults with a home energy emergency may be eligible for the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (EHEAP). EHEAP assists low-income households with at least one person age 60 or over.  The program is available for those facing a delinquent power bill, lack of fuel, or an electric shut-off notice. Eligible households may be provided one benefit per season: The cooling season runs April-September, and the heating season runs October-March. Payments are made directly to the vendor or by a two-party check to the vendor and client for electricity, natural gas, propane, fuel oil, kerosene, or wood.  Program beneficiaries may also receive vouchers to purchase fans.
