Energy Share of Montana looks to help with heating costs

Posted: Updated:

If you find yourself needing a little extra help this winter paying for heating costs, you may want to check out Energy Share of Montana.

The non profit corporation is different than other energy assistance programs. It doesn't base its decision on income guidelines and it's not something you can get every year. Mark Vinger who is on the Board of Directors of Energy says it's designed for emergency situations. Vinger says, "We all have those situations we go through whether it be a medical situation, whether we lose our jobs, who knows what it may be and you're faced with those emergencies this is a program that can step in and fill that gap."

Vinger says it doesn't matter what type of energy you use to heat your home.

To apply for assistance, go to your local Human Resources Development Council location to fill out an application. To find out more information about Energy Share, you can call them at 1-888-779-7589.

If you want to help the organization you'll notice a pledge card in your November heating bill you can fill out. Vinger says 100% of private donations are used to help people in the area where the donation comes from.
