Deadline approaching for energy bill assistance
North Carolina’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) made a difference in more than 1,700 Cabarrus County households last year, providing a total of $456,500 aid to qualified residents. The program, administered locally by Cabarrus County Human Services, is once again taking applications for one-time annual vendor payment to help with heating bills.
Eligibility for the program is based on the household income, the number of people who live in the home, and residency, need and resource guidelines. Food and nutrition recipients no longer automatically receive energy assistance—you must apply before Friday, March 29.
Households determined eligible for Low Income Energy Assistance do not receive a check. All payments are made directly to the vendor.
For more information or to apply for the Low Income Energy Assistance Program, visit the Cabarrus County Human Services office, located at 1303 S. Cannon Blvd. in Kannapolis, Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. or call 704-920-1400.
