Energy Assistance For Senior Citizens

Help is here for seniors in need of energy assistance.

The Taylor County Senior Center is offering the program known as E-Heap. It helps those in a bind such as impending cut-off of utility services, lack of fuel or wood, a broken heating or cooling system, or an unusually hot or cold season energy expense.

"Helping with the bills, I think that is a great thing. Because there are a lot of people here that aren't able to pay the high bills the way it is today. A lot of them don't have the money to do it."

Financially eligible people 60 years of age and older may receive the emergency home energy assistance.

The program is funded by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.
