During its meeting in August, the county’s Social Services Board approved the Energy Programs Outreach Program which aims to provide heating assistance to those low-income residents.

According to Vivian Tookes, the program is very beneficial to their community. It is federally funded and would allow residents to take advantage of a one-time payment to help them pay their heating bills. In order to be eligible, the a household resident should meet an income test and must be responsible in paying for its heating bills.
