The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance
Program (LIHEAP) provides families with
short-term fuel assistance. Persons receiving LIHEAP are connected to family development resources, which provides a link to long-term resources to help families become self-reliant. CADC’s Family Development Program offers Assurance 16, which provides (on a limited basis) 
a financial incentive to persons completing
economic literacy workshops.

We are excited to inform you, CADC has worked

diligently with the Arkansas Energy Office in

securing additional funds for individuals and

families needing utility assistance.

Beginning Wednesday, September  23, our LIHEAP

program will be re-opened for a limited time

for Regular and Crisis Assistance only.

*Please note: CARES Funds have been depleted.   

Applications can be picked up at our offices and

submitted to designated Drop Boxes at each location.
