PERCENTAGE OF INCOME PAYMENT PLAN (PIPP) PLUS
Under PIPP Plus, eligible customers pay six percent of their monthly income or $10 a month, whichever is greater, to both electric and gas utilities. Customers in all-electric homes pay 10 percent or $10, whichever is greater. These payments remain the same for 12 months when the customer's income is reverified.
To be eligible for PIPP Plus, customers must have a household income at or below 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For a family of four, that equals an annual income of $35,325.
HEAP Winter Crisis Program
The Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area will again provide emergency energy payment assistance this winter for eligible households. The Winter Crisis Program begins Friday, Nov. 1, 2013 and continues through Tuesday, April 15, 2014, or until funds are depleted.
Under the Winter Crisis Program, eligible households may receive a one-time payment of up to $175 for a utility emergency and $750 for bulk fuel. The Winter Crisis funds can pay a customer’s initial payment for the Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP Plus), a PIPP Plus default, a reconnection fee or a deposit. Users of bulk fuel, propane or bottled gas or solid fuels may also be eligible for assistance. A customer may receive a delivery of fuel if their tank contains 25 percent or less of its capacity.
Income eligibility for the Winter Crisis Program is 175 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For a family of four, household income cannot exceed $41,212.50 a year. They must be on PIPP Plus or sign up for PIPP Plus or another payment plan.
Greene County customers may call 1-866-504-7379 to make an appointment. However, several attempts may be required to make an appointment due to the high volume of calls. A limited number of walk-in customers will be seen beginning at 9 a.m. each day.
Customers may be seen at 1855 Bellbrook Rd. in Xenia. Customers must bring all of the following items to their appointment:
If a household is claiming no income for the past three months, then documentation must be provided to show how the household has been supported for the last three months. Anyone providing support for a household must provide a notarized statement of support that specifies the type of support provided, dollar amounts, and the time period of support.
Customers who falsify their account status will not be seen.
Failure to bring in the required documentation will prevent your application from being processed.
