Winter’s Coming, But So Is Help With High Heating Bills

It’s November, and that means winter is right around the corner along with all that cold weather and high heating costs. However, Indiana’s Attorney General wants to remind Hoosiers that there is help available to pay some of the cost of heating Hoosier homes.

The Energy Assistance Program provides financial assistance to low-income households to maintain utility services during the winter heating season. The program is implemented through the Community Action Agencies with outreach offices in each county, which provide intake, application processing, and utility vendor payments.

Those interested in the program can reach the Pulaski County Human Services at (877) 946-4211 or (574) 946-6500 to schedule an appointment, and residents of Starke County can contact Community Services of Starke County at (574) 772-9036. LaPorte County Residents, please contact North Central Community Action Agencies, Inc. for an appointment at (219) 872-0351 or (866) 871-1200.
