Income eligibility eased for heating assistance

Ohio's income eligibility requirement to qualify for the federally funded Home Energy Assistance Program has been raised, enabling more people to be helped with winter heating bills, the Ohio Department of Development said.

Households are eligible if total income is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline, an increase from 175 percent last year.

Eligibility is determined by a sliding scale based on household size. For a one-person household, the maximum income is $21,660. For a household of two, it increases to $29,140.
