LIHEAP application submission period begins



Little Rock, Arkansas – Summer and winter utility assistance programs for Arkansans who are eligible are announced by the Central Arkansas Development Council.

Monday, July 12, the Extended Winter CARES LIHEAP Utility Assistance program began, which assists underserved people in Arkansas with gas/propane bills that are past due or shut off.

The program will continue as long as funds are available.

On Monday, July 26, the Summer LIHEAP Utility Assistance program assists eligible applicants with electric bills— these bills, unlike the extended winter assistance program, do not have to be past due or shut off to receive aid.

These federally funded programs are to help manage costs of utility bills in an effort to reduce health and safety problems that arise during unsafe winter and summer weather.
