Program helps low-income residents pay for A/C

Low-income residents can receive assistance with utility bills to keep cool during hot summer months. The Low Income Energy Assistance Program, which provides annual benefits to qualifying households to pay costly winter utility bills, this year has been extended to help supplement summer cooling costs.

To qualify residents must make less than $15,171 before taxes. For each additional person in the resident’s household, that income limit rises by $5,278. Residents who received payments in the winter automatically qualify. More information is available by calling (800) 432-0043.
