Interview Highlights

  • Their office gets Federal Money called Community Service Block Grants (CSBG) and distributes the money to local non-profit organizations including local Community Action Agencies.
  • The programs they managed are mostly for people who have incomes that are at or below 150% of the poverty line or about $25,000 for family of 4 They also manage the Weatherization Assistance Program.
  • It is worth the time to make contact with a local community action agency even if you make over the limit because you may be eligible for other programs like Head Start if you have children or the Low Income Emergency Energy Assistance if you have trouble paying heating bills.
  • There are 1,100 Community Action Agency around the county. It is worth contacting your local agency. To find a local agency contact your state office that manages Community Service Block Grants (see below) or to find a community action agency near you go to:http://www.communityactionpartnership.com/index.php

  • Homeowners receive about $4,000 to make their home more energy efficient and then are likely to save 30% on their heating and cooling bills
  • People don’t use these programs because they don’t know where to go or they are ashamed to ask.
  • Mr. Harper was able to get a hot meal delivered to his mother every day for only $1 and was not ashamed to ask.
