Help available for families who can't afford heat
Assistance in affording heat during the winter is available from Boyle County's local Community Action Partnership through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
A household shall be considered to be in a home heating crisis situation when the household meets the basic LIHEAP eligibility criteria and:
- the household is within four days of running out of fuel if bulk fuel (coal, fuel oil, propane, kerosene, or wood) is the heat source;
- the household has received a past due/disconnect notice if natural gas or electric is the heat source; or
- The household’s home heating costs are included as an undesignated portion of the rent, and the household has received an eviction notice for non-payment of rent from the landlord.
For all bulk fuels, verification of a crisis situation may be self-declaration by the applicant.
For natural gas and electric heated households, the applicant must present an appropriate disconnect notice from the vendor.
Applicants are encouraged to apply at the nearest Community Action Partnership location. In Boyle County, CAP is located at 225 West Walnut St. in Danville. Location hours are 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. For more information, call CAP at (859) 236-2955.
Final leaf cleanup planned
The City of Danville Public Works Department will collect leaves in the city one more time as weather allows. Leaf collection in December was postponed due to inclement weather conditions. For more information, call the city engineer’s office at (859) 936-6835.
