MVCAA Intake Specialist Bill ...

MVCAA Intake Specialist Bill Nichols mentioned LIHEAP, a program aimed at assisting low-income families, who may apply for funds under the Energy Assistance program and the Emergency Crisis Intervention Program.

Under EA, families may receive a check once per year to pay utility bills. The amount of this check is determined based on the number of persons in the home, total household income and the type of heating source, said Nichols, and ranges from $300 to $600. He estimated the time it takes for funds to become available as about three weeks.
ECIP allows MVCAA to pledge to a utility company that it will pay a family's bill, thereby preventing the family's utility service from being disconnected. Again, Nichols estimated that it takes three weeks for the utility company to actually receive the check.
MVCAA also offers a weatherization program to improve a home's insulation, but those at the end of the list for this program will probably wait another six months before one of MVCAA's two full-time crews is able to perform the work on their homes, said Nichols.
He also mentioned two other programs: HEAT, which provides funds typically used to pay for deposits to utility companies, and AWARE, which provides funds used to pay for rent and utility bills.
