Cooling and water utility support available through summer

Help for summer cooling and water utilities continues to be available through Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP), now through Sept. 30, 2023 for households in Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood counties.

GLCAP’s Summer Crisis Program provides utility bill assistance, central air repairs, or air conditioning units or fans to qualifying households. The program assists households with a senior member age 60 or older, or a member with physician documentation that cooling assistance is needed for his or her health. The program also helps households that have a disconnect notice or already have a utility shut-off, or households that are trying to establish new service on their electric bill.

Additionally, GLCAP can assist households to reconnect water service, prevent a disconnect, or establish new water service.

Households must be at or below 175% of the federal poverty guidelines to qualify for assistance from either program (e.g. $25,515 annual income/household of one; $52,500 annual income/family of four).

For more information on GLCAP utility assistance programs, visit, or to apply, call 567-432-5046.
