Program Offers Financial Assistance to Hoosier Households


President Pro Tem David Long said low-income households can get help heating their homes this winter by applying to the state’s Energy Assistance Program.

Long said the program, managed by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, offers low-income households financial assistance to continue utility services during the winter heating season.

“This program is implemented throughout the state by Community Action agencies,” Long said. “Outreach offices operated by these agencies are located in every county and Hoosiers can contact these offices with questions regarding how the program works and the application process.”

“Low-income families can get a head start on planning for home heating this winter,” Sen. Tom Wyss (R-Fort Wayne) said. “We urge those eligible for this assistance to apply as soon as possible.”

“The energy assistance program has provided valuable home heating assistance to low-income families for years in our area,” Sen. Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) said. “I’m pleased to know that more money is available this year to help so many Hoosiers in need.”

Kruse said the Community Action Agency outreach office in Fort Wayne is located at 227 E. Washington Blvd. Residents can also call the outreach office at 260-423-3546 for more information.
