Dear TRRCOPO,
Labor Day has passed which means we are heading into cooler weather soon. I know that we all hate to think about that, but it is a part of living in the Midwest. Fortunately, our agency has funding available to help with utilities. Keep reading for information on how to obtain assistance for energy bills.
Sincerely,
TRRC Team

Community Services
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) started September 1, 2022, for all income-eligible households. Applications will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis through May 31, 2023. Households must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level to receive a benefit from this program. The 30-day income guidelines for LIHEAP are based on Federal Poverty Guidelines, State Median Income and the number of persons living in the household. The income guidelines are as follows: 1-$2,265, 2-$3,052, 3-$3,838, 4-4,625. Check out the LIHEAP link for more information.
