“We know the pandemic and economic downturn have made it difficult for many to keep up with household utility bills. As winter approaches and we prepare to spend even more time indoors, these bills may get even more expensive, ”said Teresa Miller, secretary, human services. “Nobody should have to worry about their heat being turned off during the coldest, darkest months of the year.”
LIHEAP will close on April 9th or earlier if funds are used up.
