A partnership between six utility companies and the Dollar Energy Fund will again provide utility assistance grants for needy residents during the 2012-13 heating season.

Limited income households throughout West Virginia will be able to apply for utility assistance for gas, electric and water bills, according to a news release from the Dollar Energy Fund.

The organization has a network of more than 80 community-based groups.

They will begin taking hardship program applications starting Monday, October 8.

Applications will continue to be accepted until funds are depleted.

A family of four earning up to $34,575 per year in income is eligible for the program.

To qualify, households must have made a sincere effort to pay their bills in the last 90 days and have a back balance.

Full eligibility guidelines and application instructions can be found at www.dollarenergyfund.org.
