In December 2008, 646 households in the WSOS four-county service area were approved for assistance to keep the heat on in their homes, up from the 501 households who received help in December 2007. Assistance was provided in the amount of $163,744.
Between the bad economy, rising heating bills and a bad winter so far, we find that people’s budgets are stretched very thin,” said WSOS Basic Needs Specialist Tony Lindenberger. “We are doing all we can to assist those who come to us.”
EHEAP provides income-eligible families who are in danger of losing their heat with one-time assistance with heating bills to resolve the energy crisis.
The course covers state and federal laws, navigational “rules of the road” and basic boating safety practices.

Successfully completing the course also may qualify boaters for a discount on boat owner’s insurance.
