Applications are being taken for the low-income home energy assistance program. Nancy Hulgan, with Red Rock Community Action, says that households with a disabled or elderly member can send in those applications now. Other applications must wait until November 1st.

Hulgan says after a few consecutive years of increased numbers of applications, about 850 applied last year. She says that was down from the previous winter, but notes it probably can be attributed to the mild winter.

Applicants need to provide a copy of their most recent heating and electric bill and proof of all household members’ gross income for the past three months or calendar year. For more information, call 842-6571.
