The Ohio Development Services Agency and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) want to remind Ohioans that assistance is available if you have been disconnected or are threatened with disconnection from your utility service.

The Winter Crisis Program, a component of the Home Energy Assistance Program, provides assistance to eligible households that are threatened with disconnection, have been disconnected or if their tank contains 25 percent or less of its capacity of bulk fuel. The gross income of eligible households must be at or below 175 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For a family of four the annual income must be at or below $41,212.50.

Individuals interested in receiving Winter Crisis assistance must have a face-to-face interview at their Winter Crisis Program provider. A list of providers by county can be found here.
