Seniors living in Brevard may qualify to receive assistance with their energy bills, according to the Senior Resource Alliance.
Emergency Home Assistance for the Elderly Program, or EHEAP, is a federally funded program aimed at helping qualified seniors ages 60 and up pay their energy bills in an emergency.
Qualifying seniors in Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Brevard Counties are eligible to receive up to $5,000 through the program, which can be used to pay past due utility bills, buy things like portable fans and window air conditioners, or make repairs to existing heating and cooling units.
Eligible seniors have until Sept. 30th to apply.
