CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Residents in the two-Virginias could receive help with high energy costs this winter. 

The Department of Health and Human Resources will start taking accept applications for the Low Income Energy Assistance Program this week.

People can apply for help with their home heating costs from Tuesday through Feb. 1.

Applications are available at local DHHR offices, community action agencies and senior centers operated by any Area Agency on Aging.

They're also available online at www.wvinroads.org. The application must be printed and mailed to the DHHR office located in the applicant's county of residence.

Sending the forms to the wrong place or to a utility company will delay approvals.

Eligibility is based on income and household size.

Income must be at or below 130 percent of federal poverty guidelines: That's $2,498 per month for a family of four or $3,356 for family of six.
