Low-Income Propane Users in Oklahoma Getting Help from Governor Directive

-
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Nearly 4,000 low-income Oklahomans who use propane as their primary or only source of heat have received financial assistance after Governor Mary Fallin ordered the Department of Human Services to give them priority status. 

Records show 3,753 low-income Oklahomans who use propane for heating fuel received $1,033,453 in financial assistance since the governor issued her assistance order.

"High propane prices are really hurting Oklahoma families," said Fallin. "In some cases, we know that families are choosing not to heat their homes. That can actually be dangerous given how cold it has been. I'm glad to see the directive to prioritize assistance for propane users is helping Oklahomans to get the assistance they need."

In order to qualify for the programs, you must be Oklahoma residents and must need financial assistance for home energy costs.
