It's not the stimulus check some were expecting, but a last-minute grant could help Evansville residents keep their lights on as the Coronavirus Pandemic plays out.

Evansville's Board of Public Works has approved $70,000 to provide emergency assistance for utility payments.

Those funds will come from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, provided by Aurora.

Households negatively impacted by the pandemic can apply for Rental Assistance through Indiana's Housing Portal, before a verification process is conducted by Aurora.

For families needing help with past-due payments, more resources can be obtained by calling the Evansville Covid-19 Resource Call Line at (812) 901-1059 Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
