With these bitterly cold temperatures, high heat bills are only going to be impacting you more.
But Grand Forks County Social Services wants people to know that there's help available if they're having trouble paying for their heat this winter. The program is the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program". So far this year 850 applications have been acted on. Since the recent cold snap, inquiries have increased more than 50 percent.
"We have two staff that we've dedicated to the fuel assistance program applications and actually right now they are current and up to date," said Ed Christ with the energy assistance program.
The program runs through may.
