Program to aid low-income homeowners
Placeholder Image
United Way of the Coastal Empire’s 2-1-1 is now taking applications for Atlanta Gas Light Company’s Home and Heart Warming Program.
The Public Service Commission presented United Way with a grant for $75,000 to help low-income homeowners with free repair or replacement of gas appliances, such as  water heaters, furnaces, space heaters and stoves.
Qualified customers can also apply for free weatherization of their homes to make them more energy efficient for the up-coming colder months.
To qualify for the program, a person must own their own home, be an Atlanta Gas Light Co. customer, have a yearly income of less than 150 percent of the poverty level (less than $30,000 for a family of four), provide that all household members are U.S. citizens or legal residents and be in need of repair or replacement to a qualifying appliance.
Dial 2-1-1 from your home phone to speak with an Information and referral specialist and find out if you qualify for the program and how to apply. T-Mobile and Sprint / Nextel subscribers may dial 2-1-1 from their cell phone; all other cell phone customers dial 651-7730.
