Residents in need of winter heating assistance have until March 30 to apply for help through the Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) Winter Crisis Program.
The program is available for eligible Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood County households that have disconnected utilities or are at risk of a utility disconnect. Residents who need to replenish propane, wood pellet, or other fuel supplies may also seek help through the program if their fuel supplies are 25% supply or less.
To qualify, residents must 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). Applicants must also provide a list of all household members, including social security numbers and birthdates; proof of citizenship for all household members; proof of income for all household members for the previous 30 days or 12 months; and copies of recent utility bills.
For more information on the Winter Crisis Program or to schedule for assistance, visit www.glcap.org/winterheating or call our scheduling hotline at 567-432-5046.
