Local Aid Agency Out of Winter Utility Funds

Posted by Warren Krech on January 10, 2013

If the utility company shuts off your heat this winter, you have one less lifeline in Mid-Missouri.

That’s because Central Missouri Community Action says it has no more federal money left for emergency utility assistance. Last year, the group got nearly $1.5 million to fund the program, but this year that money was cut by more than half. CMCA says it still has money available for non-emergency utility help, but that’s only a one-time deal.

The group says it will reopen the winter emergency program if additional funding comes in.
