Are you or someone you know fighting to make ends meet? Struggling with your winter heating bills? Do you have a heating emergency?

The Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program (E-HEAP) runs through March 31. Income eligibility is 175 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($43,050) per year for a household of four.
