CADC to offer crisis LIHEAP in Dallas County

Central Arkansas Development Council will begin the Crisis LIHEAP program Aug. 25 in Dallas County for low-income residents with disconnect notices on their electricity bills.

Applications won’t be accepted for regular assistance of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance program.

To qualify for Crisis LIHEAP, people must have a disconnect notice with a disconnect date within 7 days of the application date. All households receiving food stamps are potentially eligible to receive this assistance; however, the program is not limited to food stamp recipients.

Applicants must meet income guidelines and furnish proof of all household income for the month prior to applying. For a household of 1, the monthly income limit is $1,482. In Dallas County, you may apply Monday through Wednesday at the CADC Fordyce Office, 8 to 11:30 a.m. Details: Call 870-352-8894.
