WINNSBORO, La. (KNOE) - Residents of Winnsboro will soon get some financial relief from their utility bills after they qualify for a new program coming into the Franklin Parish community.
In a specially called meeting, the Winnsboro Town Council approved a resolution to partner with LaSalle Community Action Association, Inc. LCAA will provide the town with $76,000, and the town will then provide qualified applicants with a credit on their utility bill.
The non-profit provides financial assistance to people in seven parishes.
Aldermen approved a plan allowing LaSalle CAA to assist people who need help paying their water bills.
Depending on income levels, applicants can receive up to $1,500 in assistance from the non-profit.
