In Manatee County, grant money is now available to help seniors who have a hard time paying their power bills.

The program is open to anyone 60 or older, going through financial hardship.

The county may approve up to $600 dollars in assistance, twice a year for each household: once during the colder months, and again during the summer season.

To apply, visit mymanatee.org.
