Community Action of Southern Kentucky-Liheap Subsidy Program
November 6 @ 8:00 AM - December 15 @ 4:00 PM
Community Action of Southern Kentucky will begin the “Subsidy” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that provides heating assistance to eligible households on November 6th, 2017. The significant cost of energy to heat homes leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm. Community Action of Southern Kentucky stands ready to help!
- Applicants must bring the following information to apply:
Not have liquid resources in excess of $2,000 or $3,000 if at least one person in the household is 60 years old or disabled, ($4,000 if resources are being used for living expenses due to catastrophic illness).

Barren County Community Service Office is located at 411 Happy Valley Road in Glasgow. They are opened Monday from 8AM to 5PM and Tuesday through Friday 8AM to 4PM. The benefit amount that each household receives will be based on its level of poverty and the type of fuel used for heating. All eligible households will receive a benefit, although the benefit amount may not pay the household’s entire fuel bill. Benefits will be made payable to the household’s primary or secondary heating fuel vendor.For more information you may call 270-651-8571 or go to www.casoky.org.
