Metro Action Opens on Saturday for families in need of help Paying Energy Bill

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Metropolitan Action Commission will be open on this Saturday (September 19) to accept applications from families that need help with paying their utility payments from 9am until 2pm. 

 

The agency is located in the Clifford Allen Building, located at 800 2nd Avenue North (37201).  Parking is available on site.  

 

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a one-time energy assistance program that helps families with low incomes to meet their household energy costs.

 

Metro Action still has funds available for eligible families that have not received assistance in this current program year which started last October.

 

 

To qualify:

  • Davidson County Resident
  • Active Account with Energy Company (account not closed or final bill)
  • Proof of Income (go to Nashville.gov/mac for income guideline)
  • Social security cards of everyone in the home
  • Have not received help from Metro Action Energy program since October 1, 2014

 

“Sometimes it’s hard for families, particular working families to mail in or bring in their applications through the week, so we are opening this Saturday to accept applications on site,” said Marvin D. Cox, Community Services Director.

 

Funding from the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) as a pass through grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, allows the Metro Action Commission to administer LIHEAP in Davidson County.
