The Menominee-Delta-Schoolcraft Community Action Agency has received state Summer Fuel Pre-Buy Program funding to help residents whose primary heating fuel is propane.
CAA Executive Assistant Cathy Pearson said the program helps income-eligible households lock in lower rates for the next heating season.
“The state realizes this is a vital time to get residents with financial constraints locked in so their heating dollar will go much further next winter,” Pearson said.
CAA has been awarded just over $300,000 for its three-county service area, providing 850 gallons of propane or $1,200, whichever is less, for each eligible household. All funds must be spent by Aug. 31, so residents are asked to set up appointments as soon as possible, Pearson said. The program cannot provide funding for past bills.
Documented household income must not exceed 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines. The program considers total household income for each resident 18 years old or older. Click HERE fuel assistance income guidelines.
