Heating Energy Assistance

December 2, 2020

During the winter, many of us enjoy the comfort of a warm, cozy home. But thousands of low-income Georgians, including the elderly and disabled, often must choose between staying warm and buying food or paying for medication. As a result, many suffer from the cold weather because they are unable to pay their heating bills. To help with this problem, the City of Perry has partnered with the Heating Energy Assistance Team (HEAT), Inc. Launched in 1983, HEAT provides energy assistance to thousands of our state’s most vulnerable citizens each year and is the oldest statewide fuel fund in Georgia. Qualified households are able to receive help with heating bills regardless of the energy source – natural gas, propane, electricity, oil, wood, coal or other. Call Customer Service at 478-988-2754 for more information.

Perry Recognized for Comprehensive Planning

November 13, 2020

The City of Perry renewed their statewide distinction in the Georgia Department of Community Affairs PlanFirst program. The City was first awarded this designation in 2017. The program recognizes the excellence in comprehensive planning and rewards communities that clearly demonstrate an established pattern of successfully implementing their Local Comprehensive Plan. Mayor Walker commented, “it is absolutely critical to plan. We started out around eight years ago with a very intensive strategic plan. This plan is very important to ensure funds are utilized correctly.” Communities who apply for the program are required to address four primary program criteria focused on having a proven record of plan implementation and success: goals, leadership, community participation, and implementation. The designation is for three years and enables a PlanFirst community to take advantage of various incentives that include public recognition, eligibility for specific grant opportunities, and certain reduced interest loans.
