Utility Assistance Program to Begin Locally

By Dale Gathright, Jr., 07/6/20 3:03 PM


BENTON – Central Arkansas Development Council (CADC) has announced the 2020 Summer LIHEAP Utility Assistance program will begin the week of July 13th, and continue as long as funds are available. Both Regular and Crisis assistance will be available.

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist with energy costs. CADC provides federally funded assistance in managing costs associated with home energy bills and energy crises.

CADC says LIHEAP “can help you stay cool through programs that reduce the risk of health and safety problems that arise from unsafe cooling practices.

CADC operates the program in a number of area counties including Nevada, Hempstead, Clark, Howard, Lafayette and Pike.

In adherence with CDC and State of Arkansas COVID-19 guidelines, and to enforce social distancing, only the applicant will be allowed to enter CADC facilities to apply. Additional family members and/or friends must remain in vehicle or outside. All applicants must agree to submit to screening before being allowed to enter. If the applicant does not agree or fails the screening, they will not be allowed to enter. All applicants must wear a mask at all times while in line or in the CADC facility. Due to restrictions on the number of people allowed inside, applicants should be prepared for a longer wait time.
