UETHDA announces energy assistance outreach for December

Published 9:22 am Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The Upper East Tennessee Human Development Agency’s LIHEAP Outreach RV will be throughout the region in December helping households who need assistance with their energy bills.
LIHEAP stands for Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. This program helps keep individuals and families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist with energy costs. For those who qualify, a payment is sent directly to the recipient’s utility company and is credited to their bill. Payments can take up to 90 days to be applied. Priority is given to the low-income, energy-burdened, disabled, elderly, homes with young children under 6, veterans and large households. Last year UETHDA provided LIHEAP funding to 11,730 households, totaling more than 5.7 million dollars. The following are the outreach dates and locations for December.
— Elizabethton Food City, Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
— Good Sam, 331 Piney Flats Industrial Park, Monday, Dec. 19, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
