24 Hour Appointment Hotline
In order to better serve the needs of our clients, and to give them the individual attention they deserve, NOCAC has implemented a new system for scheduling appointments for emergency assistance. To schedule an appointment for HEAP, PIPP, utility assistance, rental assistance, or other emergency needs, please call our new appointment hotline.
The number is accessible 24 hours a day - seven days a week. Callers can choose to schedule an appointment at the NOCAC Community Service Office that is most convenient for them. Customers will need their social security number and their utility account number when scheduling the appointment. This number will be in use for all clients we serve in Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, Van Wert and Williams counties.
