Mother nature has been all over the place this year. The last few days have been hot.
The warmer temperatures may have you running your air conditioning longer than planned, but If you are worried about paying your energy bill, a Northeast Missouri agency may be able to help.
NECAC received an extra $100,000 for their Summer Energy Assistance Program.
Officials said it is going fast because the money is spread across 12 counties.
With it being emergency funds, NECAC said people can only receive help one time, each year.
“Not a whole lot for any one county, so it goes pretty quickly, so if we get anything out there we want people to understand it is emergency funding, that we can’t hold it, it’s a first come first serve, ” NECAC Marion County Services Coordinator Gwen Koch said.
She added people who qualify for the program can only receive up to $300 total.
