LIHEAP Summer Cooling will operate from July 1, 2020 through October 30, 2020, or until funding is depleted, whichever comes first.
Residents wishing to apply must schedule an appointment utilizing this automated appointment system.
Applicants must be Jefferson County residents with a household income at or below 60% of the state median income for Kentucky.
Approved applicants will receive a subsidy to their electric bill. If your electric bill is included in your rent, you can receive rental assistance instead. Those who have a past-due balance may receive additional crisis assistance. If your bill is past due, you must provide a copy of your past due notice.
Currently all LIHEAP offices will remain closed to walk-in clients in accordance with CDC guidelines, therefore applicants will be required to drop off all required documentations in a secure drop box at the LIHEAP office selected using this appointment system.
Gather the required documentation – which is listed in more detail in this recording – and place in an envelope in the drop box. Copies of the required documentation is preferred but if your drop off original documents, our LIHEAP staff will return the original documents by mail or make arrangements to return your original documents.
The required documentation should be dropped off at the LIHEAP site you select, the day of your appointment anytime between 8 a.m. and noon; or 1 and 4:30 p.m. You WILL NOT NEED to wait at the site for a LIHEAP staff member to call you to process in person. Again, please just drop off your documentation but do not wait at the site.
After we have received your documentation, a LIHEAP staff member will contact you within 72 hours of your appointment time. The appointment time helps determine our workflow so applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Eligibility for all programs is subject to program calendars, fund availability, appointment availability, verifiable household income and family size.
Failure to submit all required documentation will delay your assistance. We require below documents:
Please note after reviewing your documents we may request additional information to complete your application.
