A letter from our friends at IMPACT Community Action Partnership concerning the 2016-17 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program:

Applications will be taken starting November 1, 2016 for the 2016-2017 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. This program is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services through the Iowa Department of Human Rights/DCAA, and has been established to help qualifying low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs.


IMPACT Community Action Partnership at 2701 SE Convenience Blvd., Suite 2 Ankeny Iowa will be taking applications from November 1, 2016 through April 28, 2017 (October 1 for households with elderly/disabled member). Applicants will need to furnish social security cards for all household members, a copy of their most recent heating and electric bill, and proof of all household members' gross income for the past three months or for the past calendar year.

The assistance is based on household income, household size, type of fuel, and other factors.

Eligibility for participation is established according to the following federal income guidelines:
