Thursday is the final day for low income residents without an appointment, to apply for help with their electricity bills from Total Community Action.
Assistance is on a first come-first served basis and although doors do not open until 10 a.m. people have been waiting in line overnight at the Treme Center.
Total Community Action has been helping Orleans Parish residents with their energy bills all week, in what the company is calling Super Low Income Home Energy Assistance Days.
In order to be eligible, a person cannot have received assistance after February 18, or in the last six months.
The goal is to help low income households pay their heating and air conditioning bills.
The program targets people with the lowest income and highest energy cost based on income and family size.
Interested applicants must bring a picture identification, social security or proof for each household member, proof of residence, proof of income for each household member, a food stamp printout, and an energy bill printout.
