North Dakota has $19 million available for heating assistance to low income households this winter.
It’s through the “LIHEAP” program.
North Dakota Department of Human Services economic assistance director Michele Gee said assistance is based on household income.
"In North Dakota, we look at incomes up to 60 percent of the state median income," Gee said. "For example, a household of three would qualify with income of $49,021 per year, and for a household of two, $39,600 per year."
