Community Action of Southern Kentucky will begin the "Subsidy" portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that provides heating assistance to eligible households on November 3rd, 2014. The significant cost of energy to heat homes leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm. For a household to be eligible, basic criteria must be met.  Applications will be taken in alphabetic order based on the first letter of the head of household's last name at Community Action offices.  Applicants must bring the following: Most recent heating bill or verification from landlord that the heating expenses are included in rent, Social Security card or Permanent Resident Card for each member of the household and proof of household income for the preceding month.  Hart County residents may apply at 509 A. A. Whitman Lane, Munfordville, Monday through Friday.  For more information, call 270-524-0224.
