GRADD Benefit CheckupWESTERN KENTUCKY — The Green River Area Development District will be hosting benefit checkup events in cities across the region for seniors and disabled adults to help in paying for prescription medications, energy bills or property taxes as some may not be aware of benefits available to them.

Core benefit programs include: Medicare Part D Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS), Medicare Savings Programs, Medicaid, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP—formerly known as Food Stamps) and Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

In 2009, GRADD became one of the first 10 agencies in the nation to establish a benefits enrollment center (BEC), and they received a $50,000 National Council on Aging (NCOA) grant earlier this year to continue those services.

BECs utilize web-based tools and person-centered approaches to help low-income seniors and persons with disabilities find and enroll in all the benefits programs for which they are eligible.

For more details, please contact Leslie Wilson, GRADD Senior Resource Coordinator, at 270-926-4433.
