On Wednesday, December 6 from 12:00 -- 2:00 PM, RSVP of the Ohio Valley will be at the Library to distribute HEAP applications.
The HEAP program provides assistance to low-income families, senior citizens and the disabled with their winter heating costs. HEAP is a federally funded one-time benefit through the Ohio Development Services Agency. This benefit is directly applied to gas, propane, or electric heating bills.
Staff from RSVP can provide assistance with completing the application and assist individuals with their copying and mailing expenses. The RSVP program only provides the applications to individuals; they do not determine who is eligible to receive benefits.
