Snyder County assistance programs.

Get rent help, grants for bills, and other aid

If you are in need of help, there are some resources and services that you can look into. For example, the federal government has provided $170,000 federal stimulus grant to help stop evictions and prevent homelessness in Snyder county, Pennsylvania.

The aid is coming in the form of the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program. The Union-Snyder Community Action Agency will administer the program and distribute the funds. When those funds run out, the agency may have information on other housing programs for qualified families.

The Community Action Agency Director has stated that the money will be given to individuals and families  who are likely to succeed quickly at getting back on their feet. It is not meant to be a long term charity type program. What the goal is, is the funds are intended to stabilize families, and stabilize the local housing systems Renters and households that are in need of rental assistance may qualify for help with paying rent and/or paying their security deposit.

Grants for utility and heating bills

This is another service that is available to qualified applicants. The Union-Snyder community action agency also provides assistance and grants to households that need help paying a utility bill, such as a heating, electric, or gas bill, or they can also help with fuel assistance and heating oil.

They can also refer people to other programs. In addition, the agency coordinates with PPL's and UGI Penn Natural Gas Customer Assistance Programs. These special assistance programs offer those customers, if they have limited income, a reduced monthly payment on their energy bill that will be based on their household income, family size, and monthly electric usage. Weatherization and the federal government LIHEAP grant programs are also available in Snyder County Pennsylvania.

In addition to those resources above, one other benefit of the Customer Assistance Program is that it also customers provides a chance to erase debt owed to the utility companies if they had previously fallen behind.
