The Green River Area Development District (GRADD) and Audubon Area Community Services in Daviess County, Kentucky, have come together to provide relief to those still struggling with utilities due to the pandemic.

We’ve seen programs like this in the past, but this one is a little different, as there are no income requirements for those that are applying.

“Whether it’s losing a job or having to take a leave of absence for child care," said Hunter Phillips, community development planner for GRADD. "It’s just for any financial impact that’s resulted in you having to request assistance for utilities.”

So anyone Daviess County household that has been affected by the pandemic is welcome to apply for the program. The money can be used toward water, sewer, gas, heating, and electric bills, and residents who qualify can receive up to $1500 ($250 a month for six months) in utility assistance.

After qualifying, GRADD will write checks that go directly to the household's utility company.

GRADD says the county received $200,000 in funding from the state for this program, so they hope to see many residents in the county take advantage of this.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
