Update: Hidalgo County to distribute space heaters in person only
Editor's note: This story has been updated with new information from Hidalgo County.
Due to high demand and limited availability, the Hidalgo County Community Service Agency said Friday it will no longer be accepting online applications for space heaters.
Instead, people in need of a space heater and who meet eligibility requirements must apply in person at the Hidalgo County Community Service Agency located at 2524 N. Closner Blvd in Edinburg.
A household must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- • A household with a member over the age of 60
- • A household with children ages 5 and under
- • A disabled household member
Interested applicants must provide their most recent utility bill, proof of income and/or benefits, identification and proof of residency for every household member.
