Cabarrus Residents Can Apply for Energy Bill Asistance

Jan 14, 2015 11:43AM ● Published by Jason Huddle

CONCORD   Some Cabarrus County residents may be able to have a little help this year with their energy bills. Until March 31, residents can apply for assistance with heating bills through the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP). Provided program funds are not exhausted before the deadline. The program offers a one-time annual vendor payment toward heat expenses for winter months in the form of a $200, $300 or $400 credit, depending on income and number of people in the household.

To qualify, the household must include a U.S. citizen or eligible alien with proof of legal citizenship, the household must be subject to the rising cost of heat because it has a heating source, and the household must meet income and resource guidelines.

Monthly income limits for eligibility are as follows:

Number of people in household - Max. Income
1 - $1,180
2 - $1,594
3 - $2,009

4 - $2,422

5 - $2,835

6 - $3,250

7 - $3,663

8 - $4,077

9-13 - Amounts vary

14 - $6,560

Eligibility is determined by using income for the month prior to the date of application. Everyone who makes an application must bring verification of income, social security numbers and date of birth for all household members as well as a copy of the their primary heating source bill. You will also need to bring proof of cash-on-hand, savings/checking or money market accounts; and proof of assets, such as mutual funds, stocks and bonds.

If you are interested in applying, you can submit your Low Income Energy Assistance Application from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Cabarrus County Department of Human Services, located at 1303 S. Cannon Blvd. in Kannapolis.

For more information about LIEAP, call DHS at 704-920-1400.
