Utility Payment Assistance
We offer emergency utility bill assistance, help for winter heating and summer cooling needs, and affordable utility payment plans based on income, as well as education and help for conserving home energy usage.
With temperatures projected to be in the upper 80s and 90s throughout the next few weeks, Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) reminds those who are in need of cooling assistance that the Summer Crisis Program is here to help.
Every year, the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (EHEAP) helps thousands of residents in Ohio and nationwide avoid a utility disconnect or a heating fuel shortage by providing them with a one-time credit to their utility bill, or by resupplying them with heating fuel such as kerosene, wood pellets, or propane. GLCAP’s utility assistance staff helped nearly 1,500 people in Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa and Seneca County during the 2019-2020 winter season with help through the EHEAP.
