The 2019 Home Energy Assistance Program Summer Crisis Program begins July 1, and continues through Aug. 31.

Bridges Community Action Partnership, located at 165 E. Lake St., Suite B., Lakeview, can assist eligible area residents with application for the program. Representatives can be reached at (937) 404-9203.

Income-eligible households with a member age 60 and older or with a medical condition certified by a licensed physician or registered nurse practitioner can receive monetary assistance with electric utility bills.

Some HEAP providers may also provide air conditioners or fans to HEAP customers who qualify for the program.

Current PIPP Plus customers are not eligible for the Summer Crisis Program monetary benefit, but are encouraged to work with the Bridges Community Action Partnership to identify opportunities for assistance.
