DMCOC update to COVID-19
Starting Monday, July 27, 2020 the LIHEAP program will be assisting clients with Power Bills by taking appointments on a 1st come, 1st served basis.
All appointments will be in person and only head of household can attend the appointment. You must wear a mask during the entire time you are in the building and the mask must cover your nose and mouth completely, you must have your temperature taken when you enter the building, and answer a short questionnaire. If you do not have a mask we will provide one for you.
Please bring all required documentation to your appointment in order to receive help quickly. No applications will be processed and/or approved without all proper documentation.
If you are homebound and/or disabled please call for an appointment over the phone. Once your phone appointment is completed you will be required to bring in documentation before we can process your application. You are also required to download this Universal Signature Page, sign and date it and return with your documents.
You can submit all documents by bringing them into the office during office hours, emailing them to LIHEAP@dmcoc.org, mailing them to DMCOC, 1122 E Marietta St, Decatur, IL 62521. If you have any questions please call us at (217) 428-0155.

- Current Power Bill
- Income for the household for the past 30 days (all SSI, SSA, Wages, TANF, Pensions, etc)
- Medical Cards/Medicare Cards (if applicable)
