Download HEAP/PIPP Checklist here

Miami Valley CAP is excited to announce its new HEAP/PIPP+ scheduling system, powered by ITFrontDesk! Our new system provides customers with the 24/7 ability to schedule by phone, online, or via mobile application.

Here’s what you need to know about the new system:

  • To schedule, call (937) 514-4777 or go to http://mvcap.cascheduler.com.
  • The former appointment line number (1-866-504-7379) is no longer affiliated with Miami Valley Community Action Partnership. This number has been reassigned and will not schedule you an appointment for PIPP+/HEAP services in Montgomery County. Please utilize the new number or online scheduler to make your appointment.

Appointments are booked according to the following schedule:

  • For a next day appointment, you may schedule beginning at 4:30 PM the day prior. Available next-day appointment slots are at 8:00, 8:30, 9:00 and 9:30 AM and are scheduled, by the phone system or online, the evening prior. Please have your income documentation ready, for all household members, if you plan to schedule a next day appointment. If you have documentation questions, see our checklist, or call and speak to a HEAP Representative at 937-341-5000.
  • For an appointment up to 15 days out, you may schedule at any time, until slots are booked. Every Friday, at 4:30 PM, appointment slots for an additional five-business days will be released. Please have your income documentation ready, for all household members, before you schedule an appointment. If you have documentation questions, see our checklist, or call and speak to a HEAP Representative at 937-341-5000. 
    • The 2018 Winter Crisis Program ended March 31, 2018. Our Summer Cooling Program will being July 1, 2018. At this time, we are accepting applications for PIPP+ enrollment and PIPP+ reverifications. If you are within three business days of your re-verification date and cannot obtain an appointment through our new system, please call our office for assistance. Please explain to the answering representative that you are in immediate threat of removal from the PIPP+ program and provide your reverification date.
    • Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming mobile application, through which smartphone users can schedule an appointment, increased appointment hours, and information on the State’s new customer portal.

About Miami Valley CAP

Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area was established as a nonprofit corporation in December 1964, with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act. The goal was “the elimination of the paradox of poverty in the land of plenty,” and created Community Action Agencies to focus all available local, state, private and federal resources on empowering low-income people to attain the skills, knowledge and opportunities required to lead more productive lives and become self-sufficient. Community Action Partnership has an operating budget of approximately $13 million, more  than 100 employees and a 21-member Board of Trustees. We are affiliated  with the National Community Action Partnership, that represents more than 1,000 Community Action Agencies across the United States who share our goals.
