ADDRESS EMERGENCY NEEDS

We can help lend a hand with rent, utilities and food. Action pact has been in the community for many years and has built strong local partnerships along the way. Whether you are experiencing difficulty with paying your rent or utilities or feeding your family, financial assistance or other resources may be available to help you.

 

ASSESS YOUR ENERGY NEEDS

Weatherization  The Weatherization Assistance Program provides free energy-related repairs to income-eligible households to make their homes more energy efficient. Homes that have been weatherized will require less energy to heat and cool, resulting in lower utility bills and a safer standard of living.

*Trained Weatherization crews perform energy assessments to determine the most cost-effective measures appropriate to increase energy efficiency and to identify health and safety concerns. 

LIHEAP  The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist families with energy costs. The program provides assistance in managing costs associated with home energy bills, energy crises and weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs.
