Blue Water Community Action was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $214,200 from the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.  The grant is to provide energy assistance program services that will help eligible low-income households in St. Clair County meet home energy costs for their primary residence through payment or partial payment of bills for propane, fuel oil, coal, wood, kerosene, or any other deliverable fuel used to provide heat.

Eligible participants must use deliverable fuel as their primary heating source, be a resident of St. Clair County, and be below 25% or out of their deliverable heating source. 

“We are pleased to be able to offer this to those who use deliverable fuels. Filling a tank with propane of fuel oil is very expensive  and many in our community have a tough time paying that large expense” said Executive Director, Melinda Johnson.
