RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is accepting applications from low-income people who need help paying their heating bills.

DHHS will begin accepting the applications Monday through the state’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program. The federally funded program provides a one-time vendor payment to help eligible households pay their heating bills.

Eligible households must have some age 60 and above, or at least one disabled person receiving services through the Division of Aging and Adult Services. The disabled person must receive Supplemental Security Income, SSA or VA disability.

If money is available after Dec. 31, any other eligible households may apply from January through March, or until the money runs out.
