Grant cuts hurt local energy assistance

Starting Oct. 1, the Cole County Family Resource Center will no longer have staff available to provide energy assistance services.

The agency, part of Central Missouri Community Action (CMCA), is expecting a 50 percent cut in the Community Services Block Grant and the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

The services of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance will still be available, but clients must to mail their applications to the Columbia center, where staff will work to process the applications.
