CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Low-income West Virginia residents who need a hand to pay their winter heating bills can start applying for federal assistance.

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia says the Department of Health and Human Resources is accepting applications for the low-income energy assistance program through Feb. 6.

Eligibility is based on a number of factors. They include income and household size. To be eligible, household income must be at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty guideline.

For instance, the monthly income limit for a family of four is $2,584.

Applications for the energy assistance are available at Health and Human resources offices, community action agencies and senior centers operated by any area agency for the aging.
