If you are having trouble paying your heating bill, you still have time to apply for help with the Home Energy Assistance Winter Crisis Program.

The Ohio Department of Development is accepting applications through March 31st.

It says the program helped about 180 thousand households last year, dispersing around 47 million dollars.

The program was put in place to serve individuals whose heating source has either been disconnected or threatened to be disconnected, but you do have to meet income guidelines to qualify.
