LEADS - Help that leads you in the right direction

LEADS Winter Crisis Program

Did you know an estimated one in ten residential utility consumers in Ohio were cut off from gas or electric services in the past year because they didn’t pay their bills?

Everyone knows someone who has struggled to pay utility bills at some point in their lives. If you or someone you know is struggling with bills, tell them about the LEADS Winter Crisis Program or the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program.  This program was created to help Licking County income eligible households who are in need of assistance with paying their electric bill.

An income eligible household with a disconnect or off status may qualify to receive assistance.  Assistance is also available for bulk fuel, like propane, fuel oil, wood, kerosene or coal, if you have a 10- day or less supply.    

The LEADS Winter Crisis Program is available from November 1st through March 31, 2011. For additional information on the program including details on how to apply for assistance, contact one of Community Service Division.  You can contact one of our three Community Service Centers:
