Easing the energy burden

Easing the energy burden

(NAPSI)-Information that many older adults may greet warmly is just what types of energy assistance might be available to them. To help, the Eldercare Locator offers resources and tips:
* To find out about energy assistance programs, contact the Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116 or visit www.eldercare.gov and get connected with your local Area Agency on Aging.
* Take advantage of special heating assistance funds and no-cutoff eligibility programs from utility providers.
* Make sure your home is energy efficient. Information is available from the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program at www.energystar.gov.
* Get a free, helpful brochure, "Winter Warmth and Safety: Home Energy Tips for Older Adults," by calling (800) 677-1116.
The Eldercare Locator is a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a).
