If Monday and Tuesday were any indication of the kind of winter it's going to be, then it looks like the thermostats will be kept on high.

So if you live in Washington or Morgan County and think you might need financial help with your heating costs, you can apply for the Winter Crisis Program.

Applications will be available starting Monday, November 3rd at the Community Action buildings in both counties.

To find out the location or if you're eligible, you can call 740-373-3745 for Washington County, and 740-962-3827 for Morgan County.

"We really would like to target the elderly and people with children to make sure they know it's available, so that they have heat and no one freezes to death or suffers," Mary Bayless, Senior Case Manager for Community Action, said.

The amount of money received for heating assistance depends on the number of people in the household.

    This does help but this is the thing I got 600.00 last year and I have bottle gas so I got it filled up it cost only 390.00 so I thought the next time I need more I will have 210.00 left so I called rutland gas and I order it and they told me the price so I said I had 210.00 left and I was going to put the rest of the money with it and they told me that the rest of the money does'nt carry over so my family had to do with out gas I could'nt cook or heat and I have 3 kids in the home I think the rest of the money should carry over unless rutland gas kept the rest of the money I only have 100 gallon tank so I could'nt get the whole 600 all at once..
