Walla Walla County residents who need assistance paying winter heating bills and who qualify through income limits can register with Blue Mountain Action Council for help between Monday at noon and Nov. 25.
Names will be randomly selected for appointment dates and times depending on the available funds. A confirmation letter will be mailed to selected applicants, explaining what paperwork they will be required to present during their appointment.
To register, call 529-4980 or go to the office at 342 Catherine St.
To be eligible for assistance, a household must be responsible for its own heating costs and must meet income guidelines. For example, a household of one may have an income of up to $1,128 a month; two may be up to $1,518 a month; three $1,907 a month.
Blue Mountain Action Council is also seeking donations to allow the agency to help needy families with winter heating needs.
