HEAP Might Help

Bear Valley Electric will once again be offering utility assistance application processing on Wednesday, December 17, 2008.

Low-income families in need of assistance with utility bills may be eligible for benefits through the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).

Due to the demand the first 35 in line will be processed at 9am and another 20 applications will be accepted at 1pm.

HEAP is offered to low-income households, and eligible families can receive an annual credit up to $355 which may be applied to gas or electric bills.

Other HEAP program benefits include up to $240 for firewood or up to $350 toward propane.

Households will need to present:

* both current gas and electric bills,
* rental agreement or mortgage statement,
* California picture ID with current address
* social security cards for all household members,
* proof of Social Security information for 2008,
* and pay stubs for all prior 30-day pay periods.

If applying for propane benefits be sure to bring your current receipt listing the account number.

HEAP and weatherization assistance applications will be processed at Bear Valley Electric Service located at 42020 Garstin Drive.
