Reminds Seniors It's Not Too Early To Prepare For Cold Weather

BOSTON - Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced that applications are now available for Seniors Save, a proactive program that helps income eligible seniors replace failing or inefficient heating systems before winter begins. Senior Saves is now being adopted as a permanent program, following a successful pilot program that began one year ago.

"With cold weather approaching, we want to make sure our seniors can stay warm and safe," said Mayor Walsh. "Seniors living on fixed incomes may not always be able to afford important improvements to their homes or new heating systems. I'm proud that the City of Boston's Home Center is able provide the additional resources Boston seniors need so that they won't be cold this winter."
