Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP)
Since its inception in 1981, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program has offered short-term help to families all over the United States. Middle Georgia Community Action Agency is proud to participate in this successful program and to be able to help families in our community get help with energy assistance when they need it most.
MGCAA assists qualifying households with a one time payment to their primary heating vendor.
Households in which every member is over the age of 65 or homebound are a priority, and may contact the designated site by telephone starting on the first business day in December of each year. Other income eligible households can make appointments beginning on the first business day of January if funds remain.
At a minimum, you will need the following items to verify eligibility for this type of assistance:
- Verification of age for every person living in the household (November only)
- Verification of income for every person living in the home
- Social Security cards for every person living in the household
- A recent heating bill with the service address and account number printed on it
We are currently experiencing a delay in allocated distributions for the federally funded Energy Assistance Program, which affects our ability to accept appointments at this time. The appointment scheduler will open immediately once funds are released to our service area.
We appreciate your patience and understand the importance of this program to you and to the many families in our community.
Our Facebook page along with the scheduling system will be updated as we receive new information.
