MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Macon-Bibb County Economic Opportunity Council is opening up its Heating Energy Assistance Program to the general public.
In November, the EOC assisted the elderly, those home-bound, and those with life-threatening issues.
Now, the program wants to help 1,500 Bibb County residents on a first-come-first-serve basis.
How to apply
To apply for the program, you must schedule a reservation time to meet with EOC staff.
Scheduling starts on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m.
