Financial help is on the way for those swimming in the high costs of cooling down the summer heat. With money from the state, the Community Action Agency in Zanesville has begun their Crisis Cooling Program. The program assists low-income families with their high utility bills during June, July and August. They can pay up to a one-time fee of $175 on a disconnect bill for someone under the age of 60, anyone over 60 doesn’t have to have a disconnect bill. To qualify, families must meet 150% of the poverty guideline. Last year, the Agency helped nearly 300 families; this year they have $12,000 more, so even more families will receive money. Call 453-5278 for information.
