“Don’t be afraid to apply. The income guideline is 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline now, so you can be middle income and still qualify depending on your household size. So don’t just think because you see the numbers on television. Come down and apply and see what we can do for you,” said Tomeka Rushing, HEAP Coordinator.
