JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Crowley’s Ridge Development Council extended the deadline for an energy assistance program to help those with low income after receiving additional funding.
In a Facebook post, CRDC announced they received funding from the Arkansas Energy Office to extend the LIHEAP program thorough Sept. 30.
CRDC will accept applications on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday until the end of the program closes.
On Sept. 10, they announced the program would end on Friday, Sept. 11, citing funding being used.
“Pending approval by the Arkansas Energy Office, CRDC will no longer take LIHEAP (Summer and CARES) applications after the close of business on Friday, Sept. 11 due to existing funding being utilized. We will notify clients and community partners in the event that additional funding does become available,” the post noted.
Typically, the program provides help for people to pay utility bills based on income.
