CANI seeks applicants for energy assistance program


CANI(Community Action of Northeast Indiana) is continuing to take appointments for energy assistance for all of its offices in Allen, DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, and Whitley counties.

Applicants may only receive energy assistance once per heating period (Nov. 5, 2012 through May 15, 2013). Individuals or families who have already received assistance during the current season should not apply again, but may be eligible again in future seasons. Any eligible individuals or families who have not yet received energy assistance this season are encouraged to apply.

To make an appointment, call CANI at 423-3546 or (800) 589-2264 and press “1” for Family Support. Additional program information and an online application can be found at CANI will also mail applications if needed.

The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) helps pay a portion of a client’s heating bills during the winter months. Last year, CANI helped around 9,000 families with their utility bills.

CANI helps communities, families, and individuals remove the causes and conditions of poverty. For more information about CANI and the services provided, visit
