Those seeking winter heating assistance through Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) may easily set up appointments online through GLCAP’s website.
Scheduling for GLCAP’s Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (EHEAP) is available at www.glcap.org/winterheating. Applicants may also schedule by calling 567-432-5046. Appointments will be conducted in person.
EHEAP helps residents of Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood counties who have received a gas or electric disconnect notice or have disconnected utilities. The program also helps households with less than 25 percent bulk fuel supplies such as wood, propane, or fuel oil. EHEAP also assists residents who need new or transferred service with a utility company, or residents with non-working furnaces.
Households must also be at or below 175 percent of federal poverty guidelines (e.g. $23,783 annual income/household of one; $48,563 annual income/family of four) in order to be eligible for assistance. More eligibility details are available on GLCAP’s website.
