LIHEAP Vendor Meetings Next Thursday or Friday


All vendors wishing to participate in the LIHEAP 2011-2012 program are encouraged to attend one of the important informational sessions scheduled on Thursday, September 22nd or Friday, September 23rd, 2011.

LIHEAP, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, is a federally-funded program that provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income households meet their home heating needs. LIHEAP vendors are defined as any business that supplies energy, such as rental facilities where utilities are included in the rent, or provides home heating fuel to individuals applying for the LIHEAP program. Examples of home heating fuel include oil, kerosene, propane, bottled gas, wood, electric or natural gas.

The vendor meetings will help provide information about changes in the LIHEAP program this year and give interested individuals time to complete the necessary vendor packets and ask any questions they may have.

The first session will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm at Memorial Auditorium, 970 South 4th Street, in the second floor ballroom. Two more sessions will be held on Friday, September 23, 2011 at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in the same location. It is only necessary to attend one session.

The Subsidy Phase of LIHEAP begins Monday, November 7, 2011 and early registrations begin in October for those income eligible residents who are disabled or elderly. Please contact at Elizabeth.Daniels@louisvilleky.gov or (502) 574-6122 with any questions you may have.
