HERMITAGE – A workshop this week on the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program will help Mercer County residents learn whether they qualify for the program and offer help with the application process, state Rep. Mark Longietti, D-Mercer, announced.

“No resident should have to worry about whether they’re able to keep their family warm in the winter,” Longietti said. “Fortunately, LIHEAP is there to provide critical assistance for households having difficulty paying heating bills. I’m encouraging anyone who may be struggling this winter to visit my workshop, learn whether they qualify, and get help applying.”

The workshop is open to the public and will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdauy at the Shenango Valley Senior Community Center, 220 N. Buhl Farm Drive, Hermitage.

Longietti noted that residents seeking help with the application process must bring a valid photo ID, recent heating bill, and names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and proof of income for all household members.

For more information about the workshop, call Longietti’s Hermitage office at 724-981-4655 or his satellite Greenville office (open Tuesday and Thursday) at 724-588-1005.
