HEAP winter applications being accepted
LISBON – To protect the well-being of the residents of Columbiana County from the dangerous effects of COVID-19, policies requiring face-to-face interviews to complete certain Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) applications have been temporarily suspended. Rules set in place by the Ohio Development Services Agency for households seeking Winter Crisis Program assistance, enrolling on the Percentage of Income Payment Plan for the first time, and those households with incomes at or below 30% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines to complete in-agency applications will remain suspended until such time as the regulating agency reverts to the official policy of record.
The Community Action Agency of Columbiana County (CAA) will be taking applications for the Winter Crisis Program Nov. 2 through March 31, 2021, at the Lisbon office, 7860 Lincole Place (rear). Appointments can be made by calling the automated scheduling system at 844-892-8880 beginning Oct.26. Effective immediately until further notice, there will be no face-to-face appointments for energy assistance at this location. All applications during this time will be completed over the phone to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
