CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Low-income West Virginians can get help paying heating bills through a state program.

The Department of Health and Resources will begin taking applications on Monday for the Emergency Low Income Energy Assistance Program.

Officials say households must meet all program guidelines to qualify and be in an emergency situation that will disrupt the primary heating source if not met.

Residents must go to their local DHHR office to apply. The program will operate until funds are exhausted.

Officials say those whose primary source of heat is either gas or electricity must provide their cut-off notice when applying.

Residents using other primary heating sources or bulk fuel may qualify for assistance if their heating fuel is at a low level during the application period.
