Having a working furnace is imperative during Midwest winter, but never more so than it will be the next couple days.

If you are a low-income home owner in Boone or Winnebago county with a non-working or dis-functioning furnace, you can apply for emergency funding assistance through the City of Rockford, but you better do it fast!

For more information on the Emergency Furnace Assistance program or other energy assistance programs, just go to rockfordil.gov.
