Heating assistance money still available

Posted:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Federal funds are still available to help pay those high winter heating bills.

The Siouxland Community Action Agency is still accepting applications for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

The federally-funded Liheap program doesn't pay total energy costs, but it does provide some "supplemental" help for heating costs for low-income homeowners and renters.

Officials say even if you're not focused on heating your home right now, if you haven't already applied you should.

"I think people tend to forget even though when it gets nicer they still don't think about heating bills but again the credit posts and then that credit stays there until its used no matter what time of the year you get it," Craig Franzen Assistant Community Services Director said.

So far, about 4,000 residents in Woodbury County have benefited from the program.           

Applications will be accepted until April 30th.
