We are all spending much more time at home this year. It is reasonable to assume that this will remain true for a few more months until the COVID 19 vaccine is more widely distributed. The cold weather is upon us and that is causing our heating bills to go up. Sadly, for many they are forced to choose between food and heat. This doesn’t need to be true for you!
Each city and town on rielderinfo.com has a case management agency that provides service to the residents of the community. Case managers can help residents apply for SNAP benefits, heating assistance and help at home. Each city and town has a link to find the case management agency as well as food pantries and agencies that provide food resources.
For home owners, landlords, and business owners there is a free energy efficiency audit that is available through Rise Engineering. This free program is funded by fees collected by National Grid on every Rhode Islander’s gas and electric bills. Once the energy audit is complete, there are grants and incentives that can significantly reduce the cost to make your home or business more energy efficient and save you money!
