INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana gas utilities are encouraging eligible customers to apply for government energy assistance and home weatherization services through local community action agencies.

Enrollment for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance begins on Monday and is available to households falling within 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines. Between Dec. 1 and March 15, gas utilities do not disconnect service to customers enrolled in the program who fall behind on their bills.

Vectren says its Indiana customers who enroll receive an automatic 15 to 32 percent discount on their bills from December to May.

Northern Indiana Public Service Co. says that for customers not eligible for the Energy Assistance Program, the utility offers up to $400 in aid to households earning up to twice the federal poverty level.
