The Kno-Ho-Co-Ashland Community Action Commission's heating assistance program continues to serve those in need with their home heating bills. Emergency HEAP is a federally funded program administered by the Ohio Department of Development, Office of Community Assistance, that provides financial assistance to low-income households that are threatened with disconnection from their heating source, or have had service disconnected.
Households serviced by a PUCO-regulated utility are encouraged to sign up for the Percentage of Income Payment Plus Plan or an alternate budget payment plan in order to receive energy assistance. Households utilizing bulk fuel must have a tank containing less than 25 percent of its capacity.
Eligible households may receive financial assistance once per heating season. The HEAP heating season is through March 31. For income guidelines and to schedule an appointment, call 330-674-6479.
