Local News State News Monday, August 22nd, 2022

People usually wait till it’s chilly to think about weatherizing their homes.

But Melinda Smith, of the Missouri Ozarks Community Action’s Weather Assistance Program, says now is a great time for low-income families to apply for help.

Applicants must meet the income requirements, which are based on 200% of federal poverty guidelines.

That means one person could make up to $27,180.00 per year. A family of four could make up to $55,500.00.

The current waiting list for approved energy assistance projects is very short.

If you’d like to apply,  call 1-800-876-3264 or go to and download an application.

Missouri Ozarks serves Pulaski, Camden, Laclede, Miller, Maries, Phelps, Crawford, and Gasconade Counties.
