Managing Winter Home Energy Bills

Over the fall and winter months, the PUCO will be providing information to help consumers “Keep PACE with Winter Heating Bills.” By utilizing the four aspects of PACE – Preparation, Assistance Programs, Choice, and Energy Conservation – consumers can help keep their heating bills more manageable throughout the winter heating season.
Sometimes despite even our best preparation, it can be difficult to pay for winter heating bills. For these situations, there are state and federal assistance programs available to help pay for both natural gas and electric bills. By taking the time to research these assistance programs now, you will be better prepared to apply for and receive assistance if you need it this winter.

Winter Reconnect Order Assistance now Available
Each year, the PUCO issues the Winter Reconnect Order to allow customers who have had their heat disconnected or are faced with disconnection to pay $175 plus a reconnection fee of no more than $20 to have service restored or maintained. If you owe less than $175, you can prevent disconnection by just paying the amount owed. New for the 2008-09 winter heating season: Customers requesting new natural gas or electric service, who have no previous balance with their utility, may establish service using the winter reconnect order.

You can use the Winter Reconnect Order only once from now until April 15, 2009. There is no income requirement, but you will have to sign up for a payment plan.

Contact your natural gas or electric company to learn more using the Winter Reconnect Order to keep your service turned on. More information is available on the
PUCO Web site.

Additional Assistance Programs for Qualifying Households
Percentage of Income Payment Plan
The Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) allows eligible customers to pay a certain percentage of their monthly income for utility services, making the payments more affordable. If you are eligible for PIPP, you will pay 10 percent of your income for your primary heating source and 5 percent for your secondary heating source during the winter heating season.
To qualify for PIPP, you must:

· Apply for all energy assistance that you are eligible for; and
· Have a gross yearly household income at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

To sign up for PIPP, contact your gas or electric company.
More information is available on the PUCO Web site.

Home Energy Assistance Program

The Home Energy Assistance Program, commonly known as HEAP, is a federal program administered by the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD). Through HEAP, you can receive a one-time assistance payment based on your usage to help pay for heating bills.

Any customer who meets the income guidelines is eligible to apply for HEAP. You can find HEAP applications at local Community Action Agencies, post offices, and libraries throughout the state. Keep in mind that each household should only mail one HEAP application per winter heating season. For more information about HEAP, contact the
Ohio Department of Development.

Winter Crisis Program

The Winter Crisis Program is a special component of HEAP that provides assistance to eligible households that are disconnected or being threatened with heating disconnection. This program is administered by local Community Action Agencies, and you should
contact your local Community Action Agency for more information about the program.

HeatShare Program

The HeatShare program is administered by the Salvation Army throughout Ohio to help households who qualify pay for natural gas bills. The program runs from January through May, or until the funds run out. Each natural gas company may have different eligibility requirements for the HeatShare program, so you should
contact your local Salvation Army for more information.

Home Weatherization Assistance Program

The Home Weatherization Assistance Program provides education and funding to help low-income households conserve energy and lower their monthly bills. Through this program, you may qualify for services such as insulation, air leakage reduction, heating system repairs or replacements, and health and safety testing. For more information about this program,
contact the Ohio Energy Office.

Assistance Regardless of Income

If you don’t financially qualify for utility assistance programs, there are other payment arrangements available with no income requirements to help households manage heating costs.

Budget Billing
While budget billing may not provide monetary assistance, this program helps you manage energy costs by spreading out the cost of your energy usage over a 12-month period. This way, you pay a set amount each month of the year instead of facing higher bills during the winter months. To learn more or sign up for budget billing, contact your utility company.

Food for Fines Week @ the Library

You can help the Pike County Outreach Council Food Pantry by "paying" your library fines with nonperishable food items at any branch of the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library, during the week of the Pike County Fair.  July 28th through August 2nd is "Food for Fines" week at the library.  Simply bring in one nonperishable food item for up to $5 in library card fees, and your fees will be waived.

For example, if you owe $12.95 in fines, a donation of 3 nonperishable items will cover your fines. In addition, any fees accrued on items returned late during that week will be removed when you bring in items for the pantry. The library reserves the right to reject donated items that are damaged, dented, expired, etc...

The Pike County Outreach Council Food Pantry helps to feed hundreds of families in the area throughout the year.  The summer months are a particularly necessary time of year for donations.  According to an Outreach Council volunteer, right now the pantry has a distinct need for canned fruit, noodles, dried beans (navy or pinto), and soups (other than tomato).

Your donation at any branch of the library during fair week will help many people.  Click here for our locations.  Please call (740) 947-4921 or email us at gawref@oplin.org if you have any questions about this or any other library service.

Wilson Public Library and the Pike County YMCA.  For the first time, the event took place in the YMCA gymnasium, which provided much needed extra space.  The visit is also made possible by a generous donation from the First National Bank.

Library to Welcome Lois Lambert

Former local resident Lois Lambert, author of HEROES OF THE WESTERN THEATER: Thirty-third Ohio Veteran Volunteer infantry, 2008, will be at the Main library on Monday, June 30th at 6:00p.m. to discuss and sign her book

The majority of the men of the Thirty-third Ohio were not professional soldiers and were recruited from the south-central Ohio counties of Ross, Pike, Adams and Scioto. They embraced into their brotherhood, men from all quarters of the state to fill the required quotas and answer their president’s call. They were the men of the Thirty-third Ohio Veteran Volunteer Infantry, and they were heroes.

Much of the story of this regiment is told through several collections of letters and diaries which provide the soldiers’ views of their day to day activities, as well as stirring descriptions of their many trials by fire.

Lois Lambert is a retired high school teacher of history, anthropology, and Advanced Placement Government. She is also the former coordinator of education at the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History. Ms. Lambert has done extensive genealogy research and is a member of First Families of Ohio and The Society of Civil War Families in Ohio. She also wrote “91st Ohio Volunteer Infantry”.

After the program, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase copies of the books. The main library is located at 207 N. Market Street, Waverly. Please call the library at 947-4921 with any questions about this program or any other library activity or service. Registration is not required.

Economic Stimulus

Update 2: You can check the status of your stimulus payment on the IRS website by clicking here.

Update: If you don't normally file taxes, but believe you are eligible for the stimulus payment, you can get a packet containing all of the necessary forms and information by clicking on the following link:

Package 1040A-3

Click here for information specifically pertaining to Seniors and Retirees.

Click here to see answers to Frequently Asked Questions about stimulus payments.

From the IRS:

WASHINGTON — More than 130 million American households will begin receiving Internal Revenue Service letters next week reminding them to file a 2007 tax return in order to receive a 2008 economic stimulus payment.

The mailings by the IRS will begin the first week in March and continue throughout the month. The informational notice, titled Economic Stimulus Payment Notice, alerts people that they may be eligible for a one-time stimulus payment of up to $600 ($1,200 married filing jointly) starting in May. There also is a $300 per child payment for qualifying children younger than 17.

“This special letters remind people that they won’t need to do anything more than file a 2007 tax return in order to put the stimulus payment process in motion,” Acting IRS Commissioner Linda Stiff said.

The notice is informational and does not seek any financial information. The main mailings, which will take place in three weekly batches, will go to taxpayers who filed a tax return last year.

“To receive a payment in 2008, individuals who qualify will not have to do anything more than file a 2007 tax return. The IRS will determine eligibility, figure the amount and send the payment,” the notice states. “This payment should not be confused with any 2007 income tax refund that is owed to you by the federal government. Income tax refunds for 2007 will be made separately from this one-time payment.”

However, some people must take an extra step this year to receive a stimulus payment. In late March, the IRS will send a special mailing to certain recipients of Social Security and Veterans Affairs benefits. Generally, those benefits are nontaxable and recipients do not file tax returns. In order to receive a stimulus payment, people in this group need to file a tax return if they have at least $3,000 from a combination of certain Social Security benefits, Veterans benefits and earned income. The minimum stimulus payment for these people is $300 ($600 for married filing jointly).

The IRS has created a sample of Form 1040A with information on how to fill out a few lines that will enable eligible people who do not normally file a tax return to receive the stimulus payment.

Governor Announces Free Income Tax Assistance Available Through the Ohio Benefit Bank

Columbus, Ohio - Ohio Governor Ted Strickland announced today that the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives has launched a statewide effort to provide free federal and Ohio income tax return assistance to Ohioans with household incomes below $54,000 per year.

The assistance is offered through The Ohio Benefit Bank - a free service that provides help for low and moderate-income Ohioans to claim tax credits and other work support benefits.

"Completing a tax return can often be a complex and time-consuming process. That's why I encourage Ohioans who need assistance to take advantage of the Benefit Bank's tax preparaion services," Strickland said. "Benefit Bank counselors stand ready to help families with their taxes as well as determine their potential eligibility for additional benefits."

Ohio Benefit Bank is offered through a public-private partnership between the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks and more than 400 faith-based, non-profit, governmental and private-sector partners.

Trained counselors are currently staffing more than 120 Benefit Bank sites and clinics across the state to help prepare and file federal and Ohio income tax returns at no cost to eligible Ohioans. Free income tax assistance is also available through an online, self-service program at www.OBB.Ohio.Gov. Ohio public libraries are also partnering with the Benefit Bank to provide internet access and encourage individuals to utilize the online program.

Ohioans can also check potential eligibility for other work support benefits such as health care coverage, home energy assistance, child care subsidies and food stamps at Benefit Banks sites and clinics or online.

To identify tax assistance services available in local communities or to get additional information on the Benefit Bank, please call 1-800-648-1176 or visit www.OBB.Ohio.Gov.

In less than 18 months of operations, the Benefit Bank has helped more than 7,500 Ohioans claim more than $9 million in tax credits and other work supports.

However, more than $1.6 billion dollars in tax credits and other supports go unclaimed by eligible Ohioans who do not apply. More than 95 percent of these unclaimed funds are federal dollars. This includes more than 165,000 Ohioans who do not claim the Earned Income Tax Credit.
