CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County residents that have received a utility disconnection notice, but can't afford to pay the bill, may be eligible to get help through CAA's Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).
The Community Action Agency (CAA) has begun to accept applications for a one-time benefit during the coming winter months.
If residents have a hard time paying their utility bill, the program can provide up to $175 towards your bill.
You must qualify based on income and once approved, the assistance will only offer money once.
The HEAP staff will be seeing walk-ins Monday-Thursday beginning at 8 a.m. on Langdon Farm Road. Appointments are suggested.
To apply, you must bring: a valid ID, current Duke Energy bill and your Social Security card.
The HEAP hotline number for more information is: 1-866-747-1039.
