Here’s a reminder that Tuesday is a big day for Osceola County residents who need food and utility assistance.
At 10 a.m., the Osceola County on Aging will reopen its COVID-19 Emergency Utility Assistance Application. It’s geared to KUA, Toho Water and St. Cloud Utilities with a past due bill, using assistance program funds.
Your household income must be at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty level (a maximum of $2,082 per month of income for a single person, $2,818 for a two-person family, $3,555 for three-person, or see the website for full table) to qualify. This must be the first time you have received utility assistance from the Osceola Council on Aging in the last year.
The applications will be taken online at the Council on Aging’s webpage for COVID-19 emergency utility assistance until all available slots are taken. You will receive a call from an Osceola Council on Aging representative requesting back up documentation to verify eligibility.
Tuesday is also the day the City of Kissimmee and Farm Share, Inc. are collaborating on a free produce giveaway at the Kissimmee Service Center (2201 Mabbette Street) from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This event is a drive-thru event only (no walk ups). Drivers are urged to come in via Dyer Boulevard, Martin Luther King Boulevard and Alaska Avenue (one block west of Thacker Avenue). Each car will receive one bag, while supplies last and it will be placed in the trunk. Call 407-847-2821 for more info.
