Residents can now contact Grey County to apply for the Sustainable Housing Benefit, a program to assist with housing-related costs including hydro, natural gas, propane and wood heating bills.
“The temperatures are dropping and we want to make sure households in our community can catch up on heating bills and stay warm this season,” said Grey County Warden Alan Barfoot. “If you’re struggling with past due accounts, contact Grey County. We may be able to assist you and your family.”
The application form can be found online at www.grey.ca/affordable-housing. If you are unable to access the form online you can call Grey County at 519-376-5744.
