The town’s Council on Aging is providing assistance to residents interested in applying to the Massachusetts Good Neighbor Energy Fund. The program provides assistance to people who, because of temporary financial hardship, cannot pay monthly household energy expenses but are not eligible for federal or state assistance. The fund will open Feb. 3; there are income limits for participation. For more information on applying, call the Council on Aging office at 978-425-1390, or visit the fund’s website at www.magoodneighbor.org.
