The application period for the federally funded home energy assistance program begins Monday, and state officials are urging low-income families, seniors and individuals to sign up before the temperatures drop this winter. 

More than $325 million is available for New Yorkers who qualify. 

For example, a family of four must make less than $53,500 to be eligible.
