IMPACT Community Action Partnership provides a number of programs designed to help families stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and maintain access to water. Clients can receive a one-time payment for a utility bill if income guidelines are met. IMPACT will help clients apply for the benefit through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Applications for the LIHEAP program are accepted November 1st – April 30th.
