GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - If you're having trouble keeping your home warm during this propane shortage, there's some places out there that can help.

Should you need emergency heating assistance, you can contact your local county or tribal office here.

There's also Wisconsin's Home Energy Assistance Program that you can call at (866) 432-8947 or the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund at (800) 891-9276.

In addition, crisis benefits are also available as part of the $8.5 million released by the state Division of Energy. Crisis benefits include financial assistance to purchase home heating fuel, help in locating fuel providers and temporary lodging. The Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund has agreed to temporarily allow an increase in income limit for propane households; to be eligible, gross household income must be 80% or less of the state median income level. Households can also potentially receive an increased maximum benefit of $600, and potentially receive two benefit payments per year.
