Heating bills will be increasing for most of us in the coming months and National Fuel is looking to help out with that.

According to WKBW, National Fuel's 'Neighbor for Neighbor' Heat fund re-opens today, October 1st.

This is a grant that is given first-come, first-served.

You must meet one of the following qualifications:

  • You're 55 years or older
  • You or someone in your household has a disability that reduces the household's income
  • You have a verified medical emergency
  • You're a military veteran
  • You receive unemployment benefits

You don't have to be a National Fuel customer but you must live within the National Fuel service territory.
