The autumn is a very busy time for United Communities’ Client Services Department. Half of the department, the Benefits Access Center, is gearing up for the annual launch of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding on November 1st. LIHEAP, for those who may be unaware, provides a grant to qualified low-income families who have fallen behind on their utility bill. For families facing imminent shut off of their heating utility, a separate emergency Crisis grant is also available.
For additional information on these or any other state benefits, such as SNAP, CHIP, or Medicaid; or to make an appointment, please call the Houston Center front desk at 215-468-1645, ext. 7200!
**Please also take note that through the month of December, our First Time Home Buyers class schedule has changed to accommodate the upcoming holidays. October’s sessions are 10/17 and 10/24, November’s are 11/14 and 11/21, December’s are 12/12 and 12/19.**
