SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Enrollment for winter heating assistance has begun at the 35 local agencies that administer the program throughout Illinois.

 

The agencies are beginning to process applications on a first come, first served basis. Priority enrollment for seniors, the disabled and families with children under age 5 began earlier this year.

Certain documentation is required to apply. More information is available on the program's website.
