Home heating help available

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Help is now available for people having trouble paying their utility bills.

The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, along with the Home Energy Assistance Program, are accepting applications.

"It's a huge need, and I don't even think we're seeing the extent of the need," said Robin Avant, the program manager. "I still there are a lot of households who need assistance who may not feel comfortable asking for help, but we urge them to do so."

People who qualify can get up to $175 for their utility bills.
