The 2010-2011 Fuel Assistance Season Has Ended
The 2010-2011 Fuel Assistance season ended on April 30th. Final bills are now being paid. There was a total of 16,880 applications taken this year with a total of $7,906,736.25 spent on heating costs for the clients to date. Thank you to the Fuel Assistance staff for a job well done!
With the high cost of fuel products, the very cold winter and the continued strained economy, it was a “perfect storm” for the clients and staff. They are continuing to take Electric Assistance Program applications as well as emergency applications for the Neighbor Helping Neighbor Programs, the NGRID Program and the Family Emergency Loan Program. Applications for the next winter’s Fuel Assistance Program will start to be taken on July 5th for priority families. These are the elderly, the disabled and the families with children under the age of 6. All others can apply for winter assistance starting September 1, 2011. Have a great summer!
