Eastie Fuel Assistance Benefits Now at $1,650

Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) kicked off the annual Fuel Assistance Program at the ABCD’s APAC office on Meridian Street in East Boston in November.

ABCD ABCD President/CEO John J. Drew is now urging Eastie residents to apply for fuel aid now as federal funding to the program has increased.

Drew said with the new round of funding households at or below the federal poverty level can now receive $1,650 in fuel assistance, while those with slightly higher incomes receive increased benefits on a sliding scale.
