Our Purpose:

The purpose of the Corporation is to seek, identify and eliminate the causes of poverty in the counties of Crisp, Dooly, Macon, Marion, Schley, Sumter, Taylor, and Webster.

  2. Encourage economic development and community involvement.

  3. Work in cooperation with other organizations in planning and executing activities to improve economic and social conditions.

  4. Educate the public on possible sources for economic and social assistance.

  5. Plan and execute activities, which will help each community become more aware of and responsive to cause and symptoms of poverty.

The purposes for which the Corporation is organized are exclusively religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational within the meaning of section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 as amended.

The basic requirements that need to be met in order to receive financial assistance from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program include the following:

  • The applicant needs to be a U.S. citizen or legally admitted immigrant.

  • The applicant's total gross annual household income needs to be at or below 60% of the State's Median Income. 

  • The applicant needs to have full responsibility for paying the cost of energy bills for the primary home heating source.

LIHEAP applicants are served on a first-come, first serve basis by each agency, for the counties that they serve. Customers are encouraged to apply early before funding expires.

weatherization

Save energy and address health and safety concerns through weatherization.

Georgia’s Weatherization Assistance Program increases the energy efficiency of dwellings owned or occupied by low-income persons using whole house weatherization, which treats the house as a single energy-consuming system rather than a loose collection of unrelated pieces of equipment.

Who is eligible? To be eligible for the program, your household income cannot exceed 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Preference is given to the elderly, people with disabilities, and families with children. Single-family homes, manufactured homes, and multifamily buildings are eligible.
