BALDWIN — Social services organization FiveCAP is offering help to low-income residents with heat payment assistance for both deliverable fuel and metered utilities.
“Lack of resources and extremely cold weather can be a dangerous combination for low-income families in northern Michigan,” FiveCAP Executive Director Mary Trucks stated in a press release. “When your income is barely covering your expenses, adding the high cost of heating a home to the mix is an incredible burden. And if you cannot pay your utility bill, the utility company will shut it off. We have funds available to help people avoid this and keep their families safe and warm through the winter.”
