LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Residents having trouble paying their heating bills can now receive assistance.

Thousands of people living in Jefferson County are expected to participate over the next few months in the crisis phase of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

Starting Monday, people who have appointments will begin getting assistance.

The services will run until March 31, or until the $2.3 million for the program runs out.

The amount set aside for the 2013 LIHEAP program is about 10 percent less than 2012.
