LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Lane County has received more funding for its low-income energy assistance program. 

The program helps income-qualified households with their home energy expenses. It provides families with a one-time payment and may be used for electricity, natural gas, home heating oil, propane, wood pellets and wood. 

To qualify a household's current gross monthly income must be at or below 60% of Oregon's median income. A household of one can have a gross monthly income as high as $2,165. A household of four can have a gross monthly income of up to $4,163. If a household has already received a previous payment then they do not qualify for a second one. 

The amount of assistance for a household depends on a number of factors and can range from $250 to $550. Households do not need to demonstrate being affected by COVID-19 to qualify.
