Assistance available with home heating bills

If you are having trouble paying your heating bills, Human Services, Inc. in Bartholomew County is now accepting applications for this winter’s Energy Assistance Program.

The program is income based and funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. A family of three can’t have gross earnings or more than $3,195 a month, while a family of four is limited to $3,803 dollars. The agency says that even households that have their utilities included in the rent may also be eligible.
