MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (WFRV) Help is available to keep you warm this winter.
WE Energies says funding is now available for people looking for heating assistance. It's all part of the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program.
Families of four that earn up to about $46,700 a year may qualify. Qualification is not based on whether someone is behind on paying energy bills. Instead, the benefit amount is determined by household size, income level, energy costs and other factors.
If you apply, here are the documents you will need:
Photo ID for applicant, including name and address
Proof of income for all household members for previous three months
Social security cards for everyone in household
Current energy bill
Phone number of landlord and rent certificate or statement (if applicant is renter and heat is included)
