COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A utility assistance program extended the deadline for AEP Ohio customers to apply for financial help to pay this winter's high heating bills.
The application deadline for the Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor utility assistance program is now May 30.
Neighbor to Neighbor resulted from a partnership between AEP Ohio and Dollar Energy Fund. It offers one-time assistance to families facing electric service termination with a grant applied to their AEP Ohio account.
The program's network of more than 120 Ohio community based organizations is now taking applications. Total gross household income must be at or below 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. Households also must have made a sincere payment effort on their electric bill the last 90 days and have a back balance.
