BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Applications are being accepted for a program that helps low-income people pay their heating bills.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says about 13,000 people received assistance last year under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

The so-called LIHEAP program helps eligible families pay for home heating and home weatherizing.

To qualify, a household can earn up to 60 percent of the state median income. For a family of three, that equals about $43,430 per year.
