SECOND PHASE OF LIHEAP PROGRAM BEGINS

 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Duquesne Light Company is advising customers in Allegheny and Beaver counties who need emergency assistance paying winter electric bills that applications are being accepted for funds under the second phase of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). This phase is commonly referred to as the crisis program.
 LIHEAP 2 applications opened Jan. 4, earlier than the original Jan. 14 date, and will close March 15.
 LIHEAP 2 provides up to $250 of emergency assistance, which can be applied to delinquent bill payments or other energy-related emergencies. The assistance money is credited directly to the customer's account with Duquesne Light and does not have to be repaid.
 If the customers wish to apply LIHEAP to their electric bills, one of the following conditions must be met: receipt of a service termination notice, shut off of service, or a payment plan with Duquesne Light for an account having a balance exceeding $350, after subtracting the current bill.
 Customers who have applied for LIHEAP 1 funds may also apply for LIHEAP 2 grants. Income eligibility guidelines are the same, starting from a maximum monthly income of $784.08 for an individual and adding $276.75 for each additional family member. For example, a family of four with a maximum monthly income of $1,614.33 would be eligible.
