COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Enrichment Services Program Inc. on 12th Avenue in Columbus will provide heating assistance for residents of Muscogee County who are 18 or older starting December 3rd.  They want to help residents pay either their electric bill or gas bill. 

Appointments will be taken by telephone only on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00a.m.-1:00p.m. or until the allotted appointments have been made for each day.  If you meet all of the requirements, you must go to your appointment at 2100 12th Avenue and bring:

  2. Proof of Social Security Numbers for each person in the household.

The Community Services Director of Enrichment Services Program says they do this to help the community, especially during the holidays.  They understand these bills can be higher during colder months, and those with financial struggles need more assistance.
