Energy Assistance Deadline Extended

The Ohio Devel­op­ment Ser­vices Agency says it will extend the Home Energy Assis­tance Win­ter Cri­sis Pro­gram appli­ca­tion dead­line from March 31 to April 15.

The pro­gram pro­vides assis­tance to eli­gi­ble house­holds that are threat­ened with dis­con­nec­tion, have been dis­con­nected or if their tank con­tains 35 per­cent or less of its capac­ity of bulk fuel.

To qual­ify, a house­hold must be at or below 175 per­cent of the fed­eral poverty guide­lines. For a fam­ily of four, that would be $41,212.50.

If you are inter­ested in receiv­ing assis­tance, you first must have a face-to-face inter­view. In Williams County, that would occur at the North­west­ern Ohio Com­mu­nity Action Com­mis­sion.
