The Summer Crisis Program, which provides electric bill payment assistance to eligible families, will continue through Wednesday, Aug. 31, or until all funds are exhausted. The Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area administers the program.
Households with members age 60 or older can receive a one-time payment of up to $175 on their current electric bill. A disconnect notice is not required. Households qualify for the Summer Crisis Program if they are at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For a family of four, this is an income at or below $44,700.
Customers may make an appointment to determine household eligibility by calling the automated appointment line at 1-866-504-7379. Community Action Partnership will accept a limited number of walk-in customers at the 719 S. Main St. office each weekday beginning at 7 a.m.
