County offers Emergency Home Energy Assistance for elderly

Citrus County, Florida -- Citrus County Support Services currently has funds available for the Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program (EHEAP). This is a sister program of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

Income eligible clients who are 60 years and older are able to receive assistance once per season. There are two seasons in the year; The Cooling Season which runs April 1 to Sept. 30 and a Heating Season which runs Oct. 1 to March 31.

There must be a delinquent or disconnect notice for electric service. Proof of income will be required for anyone in the home 18 years and older. Gross income for one-person household is $1,396.25 a month or less; $1,891.25 or less for a two-person household; and $2,386.25 or less for a three-person household.

LIHEAP is having an Energy Conservation Awareness class on Oct. 23, from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. in the Community Center located at The Citrus County Resources Center at 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court, Lecanto. We encourage those who receive assistance through EHEAP attend one of these informational classes. Registering for this informational class requires a phone call to 352-527-7530.
