Today marks the start of The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Heating Program. It's a federally funded program designed to help low-income families in Mobile and Washington counties have the resources they need to survive the winter.
Mobile Community Action received a $3.8 million grant to help pay a portion or all of heating bills for those in need. Eligibility is based on income, family size and available resources.
Appointments are already booked for the month of January, but anyone interested in the program can apply by visiting www.mcamobile.org.
