10-28-13 heating assistance

A spokesperson for the state Department of Administration says  the state is hoping the amount of federal money received this year to help pay the heating bills of low income residents is more than
projected.  The Department of Administration projects the average heating benefit this season will be about $100 less than last season.  But department spokesperson Stephanie Marquis tells WFDL news that amount could still change.  The heating assistance is available now through May 15th.  Eligibility is based on household income, household size and the home’s heating cost.  A family of four must earn less than $47,485 to qualify.  An individual can earn no more than $24,692.  Applications can be made through county social service offices and private nonprofit agencies.
