So it may have come to this .

Did anyone here ever receive LIHEAP? Does receiving it affect your credit or anything?

Fortunately, I don't have any experience with this and don't know really know a thing about it.

Unfortunately, I think I need to learn.

PS - Thanks, fucker STBXH. This isn't exactly how I saw my life turning out at my age.

I don't know, but I realize that I may have to enroll, like you. I've already lowered my thermostat settings into the 50's or low 60's. If that doesn't work to get my bill down, then yeah, what choice is there but to enroll?

LIHEAP will not affect your credit in any way. It is a god send for people that need the help. I have helped administer the program several places so if you need more info just PM me.

That must be a regional assistance program. I have never heard of it. If you need a one time thing with help to keep power or heat on try Catholic Charities, and any other charitable organization group regionally. I have a list of help organizations but it is for the St Louis regiOn only.

Georgia sucks. If you are lucky, when you are needy the program has some funds. Then you have to wait until you get a shutoff notice and then they will contribute SOME to the bill, like $50 or something and only once a year. If you have received the help in the last 12 months, then you must go elsewhere.
No help there.

Last year I needed help and was told the funds were not there. I went begging at the larger local churches. Fortunately a couple of things I had for sale did sell and allowed me to pay it partially and the power company worked with me to roll the rest to the next month.

A google search seems to point to other states being more helpful.

Try your energy provider, ours was a small municipal company. They could extend deadlines, spread payments out, refer you to local agencies for help. They know who is helping to pay their bills, ask them for guidance on where to go for help.

Good luck,

We almost had to join our local program.

No it does not effect your credit, but you do have to give them alot of information to make sure that you really do qualify for the assistance i think.

And honestly, these situations are why the help is there. Don't ever be sorry to ask for help - its why it is there.

It will help your credit by keeping you from defaulting on your obligations. The program is almost certainly administered through a state program. Look it up online or go to your local state aid agency. Do it soon since the $s go down as the heating season progresses. November is probably the cut off date.

Endeavor to persevere.
