The Organized Community Action Program (OCAP), will begin accepting applications for cooling asstance Monday, said local agency director Elizabeth Seay.

Applicants should call 334-428-2660 for an appointment and will be required to present:

• proof of income for all household members from the prior month. This could be bank statements or check stubs.

• a current, unpaid heating bill.

• Social Security Card for each member of the household.

For an appointment, call 334-428-2660.

Assistance through the American Red Cross program, Project Share, will not be available until sometime in July, county chapter director Merrill Davis said.
