GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford County’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program has given out all the money it had available, but help is still available from another similar program.

The Crisis Intervention Program still has money left for people who are close to having their heating and cooling utilities disconnected.

People who qualify can get up to $600 a year to help pay for past-due bills.

There are several locations residents can go to get apply for CIP assistance. Greensboro residents can go to the Salvation Army Center of Hope at 1311 S. Eugene St.

Those in High Point and Jamestown can go to four different locations: Open Door Ministries at 400 Centennial St., Helping Hands at 1919 Surrett Dr., The Salvation Army at 301 W. Green St. and West End Ministries at 903 English Road.

For more information, you can contact energy assistance program officials at (336) 641-3769.

LIEAP was given $908,000 this year.
