In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Gov. Tom Wolf’s order to close the physical locations of non-life-sustaining businesses, SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) has closed its office(s) during this time, and in-person meetings have been cancelled/postponed.

We continue to serve you during this time of crisis. Staff are working remotely and are available by phone and email. This includes assistance to businesses and communities.

However, our Weatherization and Housing Rehabilitation work is not permitted to continue until the governor lifts his order because of in-home contact with clients. We will resume weatherization and housing rehabilitation services as soon as we are permitted.

Importantly, our Crisis services are still functioning. The Crisis program repairs a malfunctioning heating unit at no cost to residents who qualify for fuel assistance, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The Crisis program runs until April 15 this year. For residents whose heat source is malfunctioning, they should call their county assistance office. The county assistance office will forward the completed referral to SEDA-COG to assign to a subcontractor. We encourage any clients with questions or concerns to reach out to us at and we will direct your inquiries to the relevant department.

Thank you, and stay safe!
