posted by Web Staff - email | Twitter 

ATLANTA - The Georgia Department of Human Resources is assisting Georgians with heating bills.

The money, which could be $310 or $350 will come from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

Beginning November 2, 2009, the LIHEAP program will open to senior citizens 65 years of age and older. On December 1, 2010 the program will open up to the general public. 

All those that heat with gas, who have a total electric household, meet the 187% of poverty income guidelines, and are able to provide the following information:

  • Proof of income for all household members for the last 30 days; 90 days if irregular income.
  • Most recent home heating bill.
  • Verification of social security cards for all household members or some other legal proof of SS number.
  • Picture ID for applicant.

Those eligible for assistance should apply now for a one-time payment at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/ocs/liheap/.

To learn more about eligibility requirements and locations for applying for LIHEAP, call 404.929.2451 or 404.929.2452 or call toll-free at 866.832.9249 for information on where to apply for heating bill assistance.
