FORT HALL — The Consumer Services Program is suspending services starting on February 12 because the program has exhausted most of its allocated funding for the year.
They are staying fiscally responsible, they will guarantee services such as energy assistance, rent, and supportive services until February 12. After February 12, the program cannot guarantee any services requested and will plan out services based on priority, need, circumstance, previous completed requests, and success of barrier removal. Previous requests not yet done that were submitted before the date must be followed up with either with Dustin Davis, manager or Raelynn.
Clients who have not applied for energy assistance for the winter season may be eligible for energy assistance with the South Eastern Idaho Community Action Agency (SEICAA). A deferral letter will be needed from Consumer Services program before services from SEICAA can be done.
This year the program is working with pre-pandemic levels of funding and no longer have additional funding like there was in the past. They ask everyone to make sure to keep on your energy bills and make arrangements with their energy companies if possible. If you have any questions please contact Dustin Davis at 208-478-3709 or Raelynn Appenay at 208-478-3984.
