Heating Help

Fewer North Dakotans are requesting help in paying their Winter heating bills this cold weather season.  Applications to the North Dakota Low Income Heating Assistance Program are down about a thousand compared to one year ago.   Program Director Carol Cartledge says the state received about 18-million dollars in federal funding this year.   Cartledge says the numbers may be down due to stable costs and the state’s good economy.

Last year the program assisted over 13-thousand-700 households.   To qualify for help a household of three can earn up to 38-thousand-461 dollars per year.
