The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program provides administrative support to a network of local Community Action Agencies (CAAs) that provide services to very low-income persons in all areas of the state. The funding helps provide such essential services as childcare, health and human services for children, families and the elderly, housing, and other poverty-related programs.
The CEAP addresses the needs of the household in developing goals for self-sufficiency through case management, education and a co-payment utility plan. It provides relief to those low income elderly and/or disabled households most vulnerable to the high cost of energy for home heating and cooling from fluctuations in energy costs by providing financial assistance, paying up to 4 of the highest bills during the year. Furthermore, it provides assistance in an energy-related crisis or during severe weather or supply shortages. Finally, CEAP can replace, repair and/or retrofit inefficient heating and/or cooling systems for eligible applicants.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of Jim Hogg County, Starr County and Zapata County, you must need financial assistance for home energy costs and your household’s annual income before taxes must not exceed 125% of the Federal Poverty Level: https://aspe.hhs.gov/topics/poverty-economic-mobility/poverty-guidelines
