Help for some Entergy Texas and other utility customers

BEAUMONT - The winter weather caused many customers' electric bills to increase. However the federal government has released funds for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The state recently received $14 million for the program. That brings the total for the 2014 fiscal year to more than $128.6 million.

Vernon Pierce the vice president of Entergy says inclement weather can affect customers' utility bills and create a hardship. He says Entergy is working hard to get the word out that help is available.

The funds are administered through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.

Entergy Texas employees, shareholders and customers also contribute to The Power to Care, according to Entergy.

The Power to Care is a special fund that provides emergency utility assistance for elderly and disabled customers. The Salvation Army and Entergy's partners in this program use money from the fund to help pay the electric bills of qualifying customers.
