With support from Dayton Power and Light (DP&L), the Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area will distribute electric bill assistance payments to eligible households. Eligible households may receive up to $250 to assist with payment of their DP&L bills.
The maximum income to qualify for assistance is 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For a family of four, the maximum income is $44,100. A disconnect notice is not required to apply for assistance, but customers should bring a copy of their current electric bill. The program will continue until funds are exhausted. To apply for the program, call the Community Action Partnership automated appointment line at 1-866-504-7379.
Community Action Partnership also reminds customers that two other energy assistance programs will end on Wednesday, March 31. The Winter Crisis Program assists eligible households that are disconnected, threatened with disconnection, or have a supply of 25 percent or less of bulk fuel capacity. Households whose gross income is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for the Winter Crisis Program.
With support from Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio, Community Action Partnership will provide eligible families up to $200 to assist with their natural gas heating bills this winter. The program is designed to assist households who may have already qualified for utility payment assistance from the Winter Crisis Program.
Household income for the Vectren program must be between 176 and 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For a family of four, household income must be between $38,588 and $44,100 to qualify for assistance. Funds may pay to connect service, prevent disconnection, or pay a current or past due bill. The Vectren program will also end March 31.
