Apply for the Fuel Assistance Program

While we’re due for a bit of milder weather, the past several days have given us a pretty strong reminder that winter is coming. If turning on the heat recently made you nervous about being able to keep up with bills, there’s a program to help.

Southborough Youth and Family Services is reaching out again to families in need. This time, they are promoting a regional program to help keep the heat pumping this winter. 

Unlike the rent/mortgage assistance program I shared yesterday, your financial issues do not need to be related to Covid-19 to qualify.
