Energy assistance available in Roxbury

The town of Roxbury is accepting applications for this year’s Energy Assistance Program.

There are several levels of assistance, each with its own income guidelines.

For example, the range for a family of four is from $24,600 to $66,089 for gross income.

Liquid assets are counted for this program. For example, anything over $15,000 (homeowners) or $12,000 (renters) in liquid assets is added to income to determine eligibility.

First deliveries will begin in November.
