URGENT / St. Landry Community Action offering assistance with past due balances until the end of June.

ST. LANDRY PARISH, LA, June 14, 2022 — With the aid of the Louisiana LIHEAP American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) Supplemental Funding, The St. Landry Community Action Agency is offering assistance with past due balances. A household will be eligible for up to a maximum $1200 supplemental benefit to pay Past Due balances/arrearages, in addition to any other LIHEAP funds for which the household may qualify.

We want to emphasize that this program only lasts until June 30, 2022. In order for everyone who needs assistance to be able to receive these benefits, they must act fast! Call 337-948-3651 today to qualify!

This program is intended to help citizens that are behind on payments and approaching a potential shutoff of services. St. Landry Community Action covers the entire parish with assistance. 

Since the ARP Supplemental benefit is for Past Due balances/arrearages, the client must provide a utility statement dated within the past 30 days showing a Past Due (or installment for Past Due) amount. The Subgrantee must be able to verify the total Past Due amount in order to maximize the benefit the client is eligible for. This may include a supplemental print out from a vendor portal or documentation from a utility vendor.

For more information or to check eligibility in the system, please call 337-948-3651.
