Page‘Ten LIHEAP Available to Iowans The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps qualifying low-income Iowa homeowners and renters pay for a portion of their primary heating costs for the winter heating season. Iowa families are facing many challenges to cope with the COVID- 19 virus; some have lost jobs or had their hours of employment reduced. These circumstances and others could lead to difficulty in paying utility bills this heating season. If you find yourself in that situation, there is help available through the State of Iowa’s network of local community action agencies that have offices in all 99 counties. Assistance is based on household income, household size, type of fuel, and type of housing. The application period runs from November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021, with early applications accepted for households that have a member who is at least 60 years of age, or disabled, or where disconnection is imminent. Anyone facing disconnection at any time should contact their local community action agency for assistance. Those residing in Warren County can call 515—961- 2543 or visit www.impactcap.org for assistance. To find an agency in another Iowa county, call 21 1, visit https://humanrights.iowa.gov/dcaa/where-apply, or contact the Iowa Department of Human Rights at 1- 800-351-4659.

During this ongoing research project, Iowa PBS will conduct interviews with stakeholders from all across the state that serve rural Iowa as well as partner with local filmmakers and journalists to shine a spotlight on compelling, relevant and authentic stories. “These stories will be told from the ground-level so viewers get a close-up look at the different ways we all see ourselves as Iowans.” said David Miller, senior producer of the project. “The idea is that the people who are watching will say, ‘That’s me. They’re telling my story.’ or, ‘I just learned something I never realized about what it means to be an lewan.” In addition to these interviews, Iowa PBS is looking for rural residents to share What “home” means, in terms of pride of place, culture, belonging and shared values. These stories will help frame Iowa PBS’s work for future productions and programming decisions by providing a better understanding of rural Iowan’s needs, concerns and accomplishments. To share a story about you or your community’s greatest hero, victory or struggle, visit iowapbs.org/ yourstory or leave a message at 800.373.6306. No story is too big or too small. Stories will be accepted until November 30, 2020. “Only those who reside in these incredible communities can showcase what it truly means to be part of rural Iowa,” said Director of Programming and Production Justin Beaupre. “We’re hoping to collect stories about the challenges and successes that people in Iowa communities have been experiencing.” Funding for this project is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for the Coming Home: Connecting to Community grant.
