The C.E.F.S. Economic Opportunity Corporation will begin accepting applications for the 2015 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, as well as the Percentage of Income Payment Plan on September 1st. Energy Program Director Kathy Walk spoke with Regional Radio News and said how the plans help people in need.
Walk explained that both programs have the same basic income requirements for applicants.

On October third, households that have children under age 6 may begin applying, and assistance will become available to all other income-eligible households on November 1st.
