Now Accepting New Clients for the Summer Energy Assistance Program

NEWS RELEASE
OVO Energy Assistance Summer Program Available Now
July 25th, 2016
Ohio Valley Opportunities (OVO) is excited to announce that we now have assistance available this summer to serve new individuals and families. The OVO Energy Assistance Summer Program is accepting new clients beginning immediately and ending August 12, 2016. Applications must be received by the end of the day on Friday, August 12. If your household was approved for OVO’s Winter Energy Assistance Program, you were automatically enrolled, have already received your Summer benefit, and do not need to reapply. Income eligible households may receive a $75 credit toward their electric bill as long as funds are available. New clients can access the application online at ovoinc.org/energy-assistance-program or can call our office at (812) 265-5858 to have an application mailed.

OVO will also have window air conditioning units available for households with members who are elderly, disabled, or 5 years of age and under and who have a medical condition requiring a/c (must be verified by the primary care physician). These a/c units will be available to households already on the program and to incoming clients. These units are limited in number and available on a first come, first serve basis. Households interested should call (812) 265-5858 as soon as possible to request a unit and determine eligibility.

OVO provides all of its services without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, or status as a veteran.
