The Salvation Army began accepting applications on Dec. 1 for the North Carolina Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) to help qualified families with their heating costs. Citizens may apply 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Salvation Army office at 310 Dick St in Fayetteville, NC.
The federally-funded program provides a one-time vendor payment directly to the utility company to help eligible households pay their heating bills during cold-weather months. During the month of December, only households with a person age 60 and older or a disabled individual receiving services through the Division of Aging and Adult Services can apply. These priority applications will be accepted through Dec. 31, or until funds are exhausted. Additional households may apply after Dec. 31.
All applications must go to the Salvation Army’s office at 310 Dick Street. For more information or to apply, please click the button below. Contact the DSS LIEAP message line at 910-677-2821 or the Salvation Army at 910- 483-8119.
