The weather in the Tuscarawas Valley has already been very warm, which can be a concern for some people. In fact, it can be life threatening.
From July 3 until Aug. 31 the HEAP Summer Cooling Program may help with one unpaid electric bill or to assist with the repair of central air conditioning. Only income-eligible households with a member who has a medical condition certified by a licensed physician or registered nurse practitioner, or those who are 60 years of age or older will be able to apply for assistance. There does not need to be a disconnect notice. Some households may qualify for a room air conditioner or a fan.
PIPP Plus or Grad PIPP customers over 60 or with a medically qualifying condition will not be eligible for bill payment assistance, but may still be able to receive assistance with a room air conditioner or a fan.
To schedule an appointment, please call the HARCATUS Family Support Toll Free Crisis Line at 1-855- 806-9650.
