Help with your biggest bill

Energy Outreach Colorado (formerly the Colorado Energy Assistance Foundation) will distribute $15,000 to five crisis assistance organizations in northwest Colorado to help families unable to pay mounting gas bills.

Glenwood Springs’ Holy Cross Energy is included in the program.

Across the state, 10,000 more residents have applied for help from Colorado’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program than last year, despite weather actually being warmer than the winter of 2002-2003.

Those who find themselves needing assistance paying energy bills can call 866-HEAT-HELP or visit
