Appointments Lessen Wait Time for Heating Help
SELF is taking appointments for the Winter Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) which provides emergency utility assistance to low-income families through March 31. HEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible Ohioans who are at or below 175% of the federal poverty guidelines meet the high costs of home heating.
Appointments for HEAP are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling 513-868-9300 or 888-432-7022. Appointments will be scheduled in both SELF’s Hamilton office in the Hamilton Crossings Shopping Center on Route 4 and at the agency’s Middletown office at 930 9th Avenue. Limited appointment hours are also available in West Chester and Oxford. Walk-ins are seen on an extremely limited and emergency basis in the Hamilton and Middletown offices. The SELF offices will be closed on December 25, December 26 and January 1 for the holidays.
