HANNIBAL, Mo. — The North East Community Action Corporation is reminding residents that the summer portion of the Energy Crisis Intervention Program began June 1. More than $1.4 million in funding is still available.

Applicants must meet income guidelines, be the person responsible for the bill and have $3,000 or less in financial resources.

Applications may be submitted online or in person at a NECAC Service Center. The monthly income limit for a one-person household is $2,211. For a four-person residence, it is $4,252. Additional guidelines are available upon request.

The winter crisis portion of the program has ended but still has money remaining. NECAC can pledge some of the funding from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program if the household has not applied for those funds since Oct. 1, 2021.
