NEED INFORMED

Johnson City, TN

#1 Jan 10, 2011
First of all I do have a job. But my heating bill is HUGE this year. I am widowed and have 3 underage children in my home. I was eligible and received regular LIEAP. My question is, if you received the regular payment, do you automatically get the emergency? I have in the past. Or do you have to apply for it?
yep

Mine is too. I have no idea what is going on with them. They know that no one wants to go without electricity and they charge whatever they want. That is what I think.

You have to go to the DHHR and take your disconnect notice to qualify for emergency lieap. You do not automatically get it because you qualified for regular lieap.

I called the DHHR and they told me it would be the end of January probably. I hope your right about them not being able to cut it off.

LIEAP = Low Income Emergency Assistance Program
It's a program from the DHHR that helps Low Income families with their electric bill; that is if you qualify.

Or you can get wood, kerosene, gas, etc. Its just not the electric bill. You need a signed statement from a neighbor that you are out.
hope to help
