Eatontown NJ – April 2012 LIHEAP emergency assistance may be the answer for households needing help to pay their utility and fuel bills. Donna M. Blaze, CEO of the Affordable Housing Alliance, has announced that Federal funding is available through April 30, 2012 for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program known as LIHEAP.
“The Affordable Housing Alliance’s mission of providing housing assistance streamlines the application process,” says Blaze. “We have LIHEAP-trained counselors on staff to help clients navigate quickly through the qualification and application process. Even those who have previously applied elsewhere can be quickly re-certified working with the designated Alliance staff. ”
Potential clients must be able to provide their most recent fuel bill or current pending shut-off notice as well as meet other qualifications. Required proof of income documentation includes utility bills, pay stub, Social Security, disability or unemployment insurance, proof of address and proof of U.S. citizenship.
Affordable Housing Alliance counselors are available to bring LIHEAP information to senior citizen groups, houses of worship and other community organizations. The Alliance also administers the NJ Shares utility assistance program for those families earning more than LIHEAP allows. To apply for LIHEAP or learn more, call 732-389-2204 or visit www.housingall.org.
