Residents can get funding for fuel
CAC’s Winter HEAP Program will begin November 1st, and will begin accepting appointments on October 23, 2017. The program can assist eligible individuals and families with electric, gas or bulk fuel costs during the months of November 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.
Any family or individual can call the agency at 330-297-1456 and choose option 1 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are scheduled up to 3 weeks in advance and must be made through the Agency’s 24 hour Interactive Voice Response scheduling system. CAC also offers walk-ins at our Ravenna office (1036 W. Main Street) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8:00 am, and will see the first 24 households that have all necessary documentation.
We also have several walk-in satellite offices throughout Portage County. HEAP Satellite centers are located at The Kent Free Library (1115 Franklin Avenue in Kent); The Renaissance Family Center (9005 Wilverne Drive in Windham); Garrettsville Library ( 10482 South St. in Garrettsville); The Portage County Senior Center (705 Oakwood St. in Ravenna); and the Atwater Townhall (1219 State Route 183 in Atwater). Please call 330-297-1456 and choose option 1, “walk-ins” for more information about satellite days and times as they are different for each location.
It is important that you bring all of the necessary documentation with you when you arrive for an appointment, or come for a walk-in. If all necessary documentation is not provided, you will not be seen by an Intake Specialist. Documentation includes 90 days of income for all adult household members, electric bill, heating bill, proof of citizenship for all household members, and proof of disability if disabled. All households have their own unique circumstances, and you may be asked for additional documentation at the time of your face to face interview. A detailed list of all necessary documentation can be accessed by calling 330-297-1456, pressing option 1, and following the prompts.
