Operation Heat Help Applications Now Being Accepted
It is the time of year to light the fireplace, turn on the heater and huddle under blankets to keep the cold away. Unfortunately, many people in our area do not have the resources to heat their homes. The City of Corpus Christi Gas Department, with assistance from the Nueces County Department of Human Services and the City of Corpus Christi Utility Business Office, is proud to be able to bring Operation Heat Help to the citizens of our City to assist those among us in need.
Operation Heat Help is an annual program developed to provide assistance to the community by covering the gas portion of a customer’s utility bill from November 2013 to February 2014, up to $100 per household, for those that qualify.
Applications and program guidelines are available at the Nueces County Department of Human Services located at 901 Leopard Street, Suite 302 and will be accepted December 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014. All applicants must present a utility bill, valid form of identification, proof of all household income including child support, TANF and SSI for the past 30 days and copies of checks and award letters relating to other family resources.
As is the case every year, funds are limited and awards are given to those who qualify on a first come, first serve basis.
