Kendall County Health Department offering help with paying winter energy bills

Kendall-Grundy Community Action Services, a division of the Kendall County Health Department, has funds available for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The mission for energy assistance programs is to help low-income households meet their immediate home energy needs by paying a portion of winter energy bills to prevent service interruptions, while providing education on home energy conservation and other opportunities to achieve and maintain energy security and financial self-stability.

To qualify for this assistance on gas and electric bills, households must have an income equal to or less than 150% of the poverty level as defined in the 2020 poverty guidelines and provide required documentation during a scheduled appointment.

LIHEAP applications are taken based on a first-come, first-served basis until May 31 or until funding is exhausted. For information, call the Kendall County Health Department, 811 W. John St. Yorkville, at 630-553-9100, or the Kendall-Grundy Community Action Services office,1802 N. Division St., Suite 602 Morris, at 815-941-3262.
