Once again, patients at Goodwin Community Health will soon be able to apply for fuel and electrical assistance onsite at the Health Center
This program is possible through a partnership with Community Action Partnership of Strafford County and begins Monday, September 22. Community Action staff will be on site at Goodwin Community Health, 311 Route 108 in Somersworth, to meet with applicants and take applications.
This service will be available every Monday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through November 24.
“Collaborations with community partners like Goodwin Community Health are important to making sure we can bring critical services like fuel and electrical assistance directly to the clients,” says Betsey Andrews Parker, CAP’s Executive Director. “Summer may just be winding down, but we want to make sure everyone who is eligible for assistance has an opportunity to apply before winter is here.”
The Low Income Home Heating Program provides certified eligible households with assistance in paying their energy bills in winter, and the New Hampshire Electrical Assistance gives eligible customers a discount on their monthly electric bills. Eligible households are able to receive benefits from both programs.
