The Energy Assistance Program of Western Indiana Community Action Agency Inc. (WICAA) has announced that it has limited funding available to assist low-income families whose energy service has been disconnected or those who have received notice of pending disconnects.

New or existing WCIAA energy-assistance clients may apply.

Assistance is limited to $200. If a bill is more than $200, the client must pay the difference and bring in the receipt and current bill.

New clients must bring:

-- Unemployment statement and three pay stubs for everyone in the household age 18 or older.

-- Social Security cards for all household members.

-- Current lease, if renting.

-- Utility bills, which must be in a household member's name.

Applications for assistance will be taken on a first-come, first-served walk-in basis.
