(March 15, 2013) The Nantucket Interfaith Council/Nantucket Rental Assistance Program (NRAP) is in the final weeks of accepting applications for fuel assistance in conjunction with the South Shore Community Action Program.
The NRAP, which currently provides short-term rental assistance for low- and middl-income island residents who are facing a temporary financial crisis due to illness or loss of income, also assists low-wage island families, both renters and homeowners, who for similar reasons cannot afford fuel to heat their homes during the fall and winter seasons.
Applications for fuel assistance must be completed by April 30. Applicants for fuel assistance need not be applicants for rental assistance. Call (508) 901-1320 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to arrange an interview.
