[LincolnTalk] Spending more than 30% of your income toward housing costs?
There’s Still Time to Apply for Energy/Fuel Assistance!
If you spend more than 30% of your income toward housing costs (e.g. rent, condo fee, mortgage, electricity, heating, property tax, homeowners insurance, etc.) and have not yet applied for the Fuel Assistance
program, there’s still time! Fuel Assistance is a federally funded program that helps eligible households with energy and/or heating costs during the winter months. Depending on your household income, you may qualify if you own or rent your home,
even if heat is included in your rent. The program covers oil, gas, electric, propane, kerosene, and wood. Those approved for Fuel Assistance are also eligible for a discount on utility bills, weatherization for your home, and a program to repair or
replace your primary heating system.
To apply for Fuel Assistance, residents of all ages can contact the COA at 781-259-811 to set up an appointment. We will let you know what documents to bring.
