Heating costs can put a strain on your budget through the winter months. No one should have to choose between staying warm and other essentials like food and rent. Help is available from the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). The Winter Crisis Program (WCP) at Akron Summit Community Action, Inc. can assist income-eligible households in Summit County who are at or below 175% of the federal poverty guideline.
Through the Winter Crisis Program, which runs through March 31, 2016, Akron Summit Community Action Inc. and the Ohio Development Services Agency are providing a one-time payment of $175 toward a utility bill if service is in threat of disconnection, is terminated, is new service, or if the service is being transferred.
Please call the toll-free E-HEAP appointment line at 1-866-504-7400 to schedule an appointment.
