Heating Assistance Through Cumberland County ARPA Grant

We are pleased to announce we are taking part in the Keeping Cumberland County Warm grant opportunity. This program is to help those who are struggling with rising heating costs but fall outside of LIHEAP and General Assistance.  The following criteria must be met to receive assistance:

  • Complete an application (PDF version below)
  • Provide income verification
  • Provide identification and proof of residency
  • Fall within the guidelines listed below (column on the right in bold)

Payments will be issued directly to vendors.  There is no limit to how many times you can apply but this program cannot be used for stock piling.  You must demonstrate a need.  

In order for the Town Office staff to facilitate the program, we are limiting the application process to Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm.  We encourage you to call ahead and set up an appointment to avoid long wait times. 

For more information you can visit the Cumberland County webpage and view the press release here or contact the Town Office at 207-688-4611.  The program will run until April 15, 2023.
