SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The Economic Opportunity Authority is releasing information you need to know about their Energy Assistance program.

The program opens on December 3 at 7 p.m. appointments are only open to seniors age 65 or older. 

It is intended to help those with a low income pay utility bills. All appointments will be at the EOA Cuyler building on 618 West Anderson Street.

Residents with a utility credit of $1,000 or more will not be eligible for service. We asked the EOA when the application will be made available to the general public.
