NASHUA — Southern New Hampshire Services’ Fuel Assistance program is taking applications through April 30 to help renters and homeowners pay for past or future energy use, according to agency Deputy Director Ryan Clouthier.

Applications are taken throughout Hillsborough and Rockingham counties. Households can also apply for and receive electrical assistance at the same appointment, if eligible.

To apply, residents should call SNHS or RCA offices closest to them or call 1-800-322-1073 to make an appointment. Applicants must qualify by household income for 30 days prior to the appointment. Benefits from $105 to $1,575 may be available to homeowners or renters during the winter heating season.

One person can earn $2,709 per month and a family of four up to $5,210 per month to qualify.
