You are invited to join the Philadelphia Benefits Access Coalition on October 4, 2018 for a training session on Utilities Assistance 101: LIHEAP. This workshop will cover several of the most important utility assistance programs available in Philadelphia, including LIHEAP, CAP (PECO), CRP (PGW) and TAP (Philadelphia Water Department).
Expert trainers from UESF and Community Legal Services (CLS) will be on hand to review program details and answer all of your questions. You will also hear about actions that you can take in support of utility assistance and other critical benefits.
The Philadelphia Benefits Access Coalition is a forum where Philadelphia based social service providers, case managers, enrollment specialists, policy analysts, community organizations, and residents can come together to learn about program eligibility and application requirements, keep up-to-date on any proposed changes at the federal and state level, create networks to share problems encountered in the field and best practices, and work with legislators and policymakers to improve access to critical social safety net programs.
The Coalition will offer training bi-monthly sessions in 2018. Come share your ideas for future training topics!
