home heating assistance

The recent cold temperatures may have left some low-income North Dakotans with home heating costs that are higher than their budget can handle. The North Dakota Department of Human Services reminds low-income individuals and families and seniors on limited fixed incomes that help is available through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

With more snow and freezing temps in the forecast, you can bet that we haven't seen the last of winter weather here in CT and across the Northeast.  You can help make sure that vulnerable older adults get the help they need to pay for high heating bills or other repairs due to the particularly harsh winter.  The AARP Foundation has established a relief fund to support older adults suffering from the severe cold weather, particularly here in the Northeast and in the Midwest. AARP and its members are committed to helping those in need; so to support these emergency relief efforts AARP and AARP Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar contributions up to $250,000, which could mean up to $500,000 in aid. The matching program will be administered through AARP Foundation.
With winter temperatures dropping and heating costs rising, AARP Minnesota encourages people struggling to pay their utility bills to apply for the Minnesota Energy Assistance Program.
