Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2016

With cooler temperatures around the corner, remember that there’s help available for heating your home.

If it’s a struggle to pay winter heating bills and you have children six years old or younger, you can now apply for heating assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program or LIHEAP. To qualify, a single person must make $1,485 a month or less. A family of four is eligible if your income is below $3,038 a month.

Besides families with young children, senior citizens and people with disabilities can also now apply for LIHEAP funds. Everyone will be able to apply for help starting November 1st.

To apply, contact the Tri-County Opportunities Council by clicking LIHEAP funding available
