The Organized Community Action Program (OCAP) will begin accepting applications for cooling assistance on Mon., June 13, said local agency director Elizabeth Seay.

Applicants will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Seay said the utility bill must be in the applicant’s name to receive assistance.

Applicants will be required to present:

• proof of income for all household members from the prior month. This could be bank statements or check stubs.

• a current, unpaid heating bill.

• Social Security Card for each member of the household.

For an appointment, call 334-428-2660.

Seay said appointments are a must, as no walk-ins will be taken.
