As we get ready for another heating season, Community Action Council of Portage County (CAC) wants to remind Portage County residents that we are accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Regular HEAP Program.
Regular HEAP is a federally funded program designed to help income eligible Ohioans with their winter heating bills by offering a one-time credit to the heating bill for eligible households.
Portage County residents can also apply for the Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus (PIPP+) program year round. PIPP+ helps income eligible households manage their energy bills year round, by allowing them to pay bills based on a percentage of their income each month. Eligible households must have a total household income which is at or below 150% of the federal poverty level, and apply for all available energy assistance programs.
Current PIPP+ customers are also reminded that re-verification is required every 12 months or whenever the household income changes.
For more information, CAC at 330-297-1456 and press 0 for the receptionist. To make an appointment, you can call our toll free appointment line at 877-298-4307, or you can make an appointment online at https://capappointments.com.
You can apply online for HEAP and PIPP at www.energyhelp.ohio.gov .
