From: Iowa Utilities Board , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Iowa's annual winter home heating moratorium ends April 1. The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) reminds energy assistance customers currentlyprotected from service disconnection to contact their local utility company immediately to discuss payment options and avoid disconnection that could begin as soon as April 2.

Under Iowa's winter moratorium law, customers who qualify for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) or Weatherization Assistance Program are protected from the annual shutoff of natural gas or electric service from November 1 to April 1.

Iowa customers seeking LIHEAP financial assistance for utility bills should contact their local Community Action Agency before April 30 to discuss eligibility guidelines. The LIHEAP program pays only a portion of utility bills to qualified low-income customers.
