The Chattanooga Gas Company and WRCB have partnered for the seventh straight year to provide natural gas customers with information on how to find assistance with heating their homes.

On Wednesday, Dec. 2 customers can call (423) 266-5483 to speak with a Chattanooga Gas Company employee or volunteer about the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The phone lines will be open from 4:30 a.m. – 7 a.m., 11 a.m.- noon, and 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Tennessee residents can find out if they qualify to receive one-time assistance with heating costs.

LIHEAP is completely funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Money is available on a first come, first-served basis. Income levels must fall within 150 percent of the poverty level.

Customers who are interested in applying can visit the Tennessee Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program website to find out if they are eligible. More information also is available through Chattanooga Gas.

Chattanooga Gas provides service to approximately 63,000 customers in Hamilton and Bradley counties. The service area includes Chattanooga, Cleveland, East Ridge, Lookout Mountain, Red Bank and Signal Mountain.
