  • LIHEAP crisis component began Jan. 7

    Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency, Inc. began operating the “crisis” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program on Jan. 7. The program is operated on a first come first serve basis until federal funds are exhausted.
    LIHEAP assists households that are in a home heating crisis. The deepening of cold winter weather combined with rising utility costs leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm. Your local Community Action Partnership stands ready to help.
