Bulletin board - Oct. 31, 2008


Regular energy assistance appointments will begin Monday, Nov. 3.

Eligibility is based upon gross income for the 30 days prior to the date of application and is $1,300 for one person household; $1,750 for two person households; $2,200 for three person households; and $2,650 for four person households.

The first step, in receiving energy assistance, is to visit the outreach site in your county and make an appointment so an application can be made at a later date. Appointments will start being distributed Monday at 8:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If it is not possible to be at the outreach site on Nov. 3, there will still be appointments available and those eligible can still go to the location in their county from 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. and receive an appointment. It is recommended that only one person per household should come to make an appointment.

This will make the line shorter and should provide faster service.

Also, any eligible household that is disconnected from their utility or who is at or below 25 percent on a delivered fuel and cannot get a delivery of their own may qualify for re-connection assistance.

If there are any questions, please call Crosswalk’s main office at 937-3581 and speak to someone in the LIHEAP department. Please do not call the Illinois Department of Employment Security offices.
