Help Your Neighbor

Project Share
Project Share is a plan, created by your municipal utility, to assist disadvantaged households in paying their wintertime energy bills. 

You can help by adding a tax-deductible PS contribution to your monthly utility payment or by making a one-time contribution to Project Share.  These funds will then be distributed to neighbors in need for wintertime energy costs. Complete this form to help others through Project Share.

Mid Sioux Opportunity will qualify persons who need help and then distribute your Project Share contributions to help pay utility bills for those in need.

So please, add a PS - Project Share - to your utility payment each month.  Its a simple way to share some warmth with those who need it. 

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LiHEAP)
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program offered through Mid-Sioux Opportunity may be able to help you pay your winter heating bill.  This program is funded through the Iowa Department of Human Rights and has been established to help qualified low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs.

Your local Mid-Sioux office will be taking applications from November 1, 2010 through April 29, 2011.  Each applicant will need to furnish a copy of their most recent heating, electric and telephone bill, original Social Security or I-94 card for each household member, and proof of the household's income for the past three months (13 weeks), the past twelve (12) months, or 2009 or 2010 tax return.  Eligibility for participation is established according to federal income guidelines listed below.  Applicants eligible for an award will be paid on a first-come, first-serve basis and all payments are subject to availability of funds.
