BENTON, Ark. (AP) - Low-income Arkansans may be eligible for help in paying their winter heating bills.

Applications will be accepted starting Jan. 5 by the Central Arkansas Development Council for the regular Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The program helps qualifying households with home energy bills.

Applicants must meet income guidelines to qualify and provide copies of electric and gas bills. Eligibility limits for all qualifying income are set at 60 percent of the state’s median income level, which would be $1,533 a month for a household of one.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis on specified days in Lonoke, Union, Ouachita, Saline, Pulaski, Hot Spring and Clark counties. Applications will be accepted later in several of those counties as well as Calhoun, Columbia, Dallas, Montgomery and Pike counties.
