The Community Action Program for Central Arkansas started its winter utility assistance program Monday. The program provides funding for gas, propane or electric. Applications will be taken on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The first 15 clients in the morning and first 15 in the afternoon will be seen. The office will be closed every day from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. 

All interested applicants must provide proof of their household income for the previous month for all household members 18 years of age or older, proof of or lack of child support for all single parent households. If a household has not had income during the previous month, they must obtain a history of claims from the Arkansas Workforce Center. Applicants will also need to provide a copy of their most recent utility bill.  

No determination can be made until all the requested information has been received.
