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 www.mocaonline.org and download an application.
Missouri Ozarks serves Pulaski, Camden, Laclede, Miller, Maries, Phelps, Crawford, and Gasconade Counties.
