These 7 Kentucky Counties Can Get Help Paying Their Winter Bills-Here’s How
Do you know a family struggling to pay their bills? There's a program in Kentucky that will help these seven counties with a hand up. Here's how it works.
GETTING THE HELP YOU NEED JUST IN TIME FOR WINTER
With winter weather comes colder temperatures and higher utility bills. This can cause a lot of families to fall behind on bills because of the rising cost of utility bills. If you know someone that needs help the LIHEAP Program through Audubon Area Community Services has been put into place to help any family that meets the necessary guidelines.
AACS has a significant amount of funding specifically for helping families in need during these times. If you or someone you know is in need of help please contact Audubon Area Community Services.
They have several programs right now with different income levels, and some with no income requirements at all. AACS can assist households with rent, mortgage, food, and utilities including natural gas, electric, propane, kerosene, water, and wastewater (sewer).
Here's the information from their Facebook page;
Audubon Area Community Services, Inc. is accepting applications for LIHEAP Subsidy beginning November 7 to assist eligible households with home heating costs. Please call your local office for information. Applications will be accepted through December 16 or until funds are depleted.
