The state of Missouri has begun mailing out energy assistance applications for all households from last Winter’s program.
It’s noted by the Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri that the state mailed applications may look different than copies that are available from the office in Trenton and at various other locations.
New applications and documents are required each year when requesting help in paying utility bills. The low-income home energy assistance program, known as LIHEAP, has two components. Energy assistance is a one-time payment to a utility company on behalf of an eligible client. Energy crisis intervention program requires a shut-off notice from the utility provider or a propane tank that is less than 20 percent full or a client who has less than a one month supply of firewood to heat their home.
Kim Brashear is an energy services program representative with the community action partnership office at Trenton.
The agency’s website has LIHEAP program details and links available to download a copy of the application. The site is capncm.org.
Questions via phone can be made to the office, toll free 855-290-8544 option one or extension 10 20. Persons calling may be asked to leave a voice mail.
