Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

For the sixth consecutive year, Chattanooga Gas Company and Channel 3 join forces to provide natural gas customers with information about available energy assistance programs.

On Thursday, December 4, customers can call (423) 266-5483 and speak directly with Chattanooga Gas Company employees and volunteers to obtain information regarding Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

The phone lines will be open from 5:00pm – 6:30pm Thursday evening for Tennessee and Georgia residents to ask questions about the qualifications for receiving one-time assistance with heating costs.

“We are encouraging our customers to take full advantage of this opportunity,” said Bryan Batson, president of Chattanooga Gas. “We want to provide information to customers who may be in need and could benefit from the available funds this heating season.”

LIHEAP is 100% federally funded through a grant program from the Federal Department of Health and Human Services. Money is available for applicants on a first- come, first-served basis. Income levels must not exceed 150% of the poverty level. Customers who are interested in applying can click here to learn more about eligibility requirements.  

Residents interested in other heating assistance programs should call Bradley-Cleveland Community Services at (423)479-4111 or Hamilton County Social Services at (423)757-5541 or (423)-757-5551.
