HOW TO GET HELP

November 17, 2005 

To qualify for either the crisis intervention program or the weatherizing program, your income must be at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

For a family of four, the income requirement is $29,025; for an individual, it's $14,355, and for two people, the amount is $19,245.

If you meet the income requirements and need help paying your heating bills or weatherproofing your home, call the Carolina Information and Referral Service at (800) 662-7030.
