Eligible Residents to Receive Heating Aid

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources is offering assistance for eligible residents for heating expenses this year.

These payments were made possible by a $250,000 donation that resulted from a class action settlement.

The Register Herald reports that residents who applied for and received a payment from the “low income energy assistance program” this past winter will receive an automatic $71 dollars to help with propane heating expenses.

About 3,500 eligible families will receive these payments.

All payments are expected to be issued by the end of this month.
