— The deadline for the Winter Crisis program is May 1. The Ironton and Lawrence County Area CAO began the program on Nov. 1, 2019. The agency can assist with a main heating source cost through a one-time payment to a utility company, wood, coal, or some type of bottled gas. In order to process your application quickly and efficiently, please be prepared to provide all needed documents. Keep in mind that other requirements may be asked for. This cuts down on the time spent in the interview process and return visits. The necessary documents are as follows:

• A list of all household members and proof of income for the last 30 days or 12 months for each member

• Proof of citizenship for all household members, example: birth certificate, voter registration card, passport, etc.

Email newsletter signup

• Birthdates and Social Security cards for each household member

• Heating bill/bulk fuel account number

• Electric bill with account number

• If you are a disabled client, please provide documentation of disability.
