The Public Service Commission announced that the applications for the Low Income Energy Assistance Program are being accepted through January 31, 2014, by the Department of Health and Human Resources.  West Virginians needing help with their home heating bills are encouraged to apply.

 
Applications and additional information are available at local DHHR offices, community action agencies and senior centers operated by any Area Agency on Aging. Applications are also available at www.WVinROADs.org along with a quick guide that helps potential applicants determine their eligibility. The application can be completed online, but must be printed and mailed to the DHHR office located in the applicant's county of residence. Sending the forms to the wrong address or a utility company will delay approval.

Eligibility is based on income, household size and whether the household is responsible for paying the heating bill. A complete explanation of qualification guidelines is available at www.wvdhhr.org/.pdf
 
All applications must be postmarked by January 31, 2014. Any applications postmarked after that date will not be processed.
