Residents reminded that heating assistance program is available

Information provided
State Rep. Jim Pressel, R-Rolling Prairie, wants to get the word out that Hoosiers at certain income levels who need help paying their heating bills this winter should apply for benefits through the Energy Assistance Program.


This federally funded program is a one-time benefit that can help with the high cost of home energy, and offers support to those about to be disconnected. The benefit does not cover all heating and electric costs, so those planning to take advantage of this assistance should continue paying their bills regularly. Some Hoosiers may even qualify for an additional benefit if all utility bills are paid on time.Applications for heating benefits are being accepted now through May.
