COLUMBUS — The long, cold winter has been a drain on many household budgets in Ohio, so the state is extending the deadline for lower-income people to apply for heating assistance.
Nearly 134,000 customers have received $34 million in help with heating bills through Ohio’s Home Energy Assistance Winter Crisis Program. Because of winter’s severity, the program has extended the deadline to apply to April 15. Typically, it’s March 31.
