The Home Energy Assistance Target program has changed Salt Lake offices this year. Applications for the federally funded program, which provides a one-time grant to low-income families to help with utility bills, will be taken at 1574 W. 1700 South and at 101 E. 7200 South.
Provo residents will be served through the Community Action Agency, with locations at some senior citizens' centers. Manti, Richfield and the surrounding area will be served through Snow College's Turnaround Project, with locations in senior centers and some courthouses. Information can be obtained from any Human Service office.The program will open Thursday, Nov. 1, for elderly or handicapped individuals and Nov. 15 for the general public. The budget has not yet been determined, but the program should operate about like last year. If Congress fails to pass a budget, the program will be subject to Gramm-Rudman cuts and may have to close early.
Applicants need to provide identification, Social Security cards for all household members 18 or over, a copy of the most recent utility bills from each of the household's major utility suppliers, verification of income of every member of the household during the previous month and proof of medical bills paid during the previous calendar month if a medical deduction is desired.
