Tri-County Community Action can help area residents apply for the Winter Crisis Program, which is available to help eligible low income Ohioans who are at or below 200 percent of the poverty level meet their heating costs.
The Winter Crisis Program runs through March 31 and helps clients who have been disconnected from their heat source, have a disconnect notice or have less than a 25 percent supply of bulk fuel.
